13.03.2018 COBE unveils new plaza in front of Designmuseum Danmark

Designmuseum Danmark is uniquely situated in the historical centre of Copenhagen, housed in listed buildings in Frederiksstaden district, which is considered one of the most important rococo complexes in Europe.


The project features three elements - repaved plaza, new outdoor display cases and a new entrance with café, ticket office and museum shop - that invites visitors into the new plaza where they will get to preview the museum’s treasure trove and offers passers-by a chance to see contemporary design for free.


COBE was selected as architects for the project during an architectural competition settled in February 2017. The ground-breaking will be held in May, and the project is expected to be completed around 1 November 2018. The project was made possible thanks to a donation of DKK 25 million from Annie & Otto Johs. Detlefs Fonde.
