In collaboration with CLEVER, which supplies charging solutions for electric vehicles, COBE unveils the design for the ultra-fast charging station. The idea is to let drivers take a meaningful break during their journey.

 

The charging station takes the form of a series of structural ‘trees’, with ‘crowns’ that filter light and shade to create a green environment with a calming atmosphere. The modular approach means that the design is scalable, and that one ‘tree’ can easily be multiplied to become a ‘forest’ depending on the required capacity. 

 

Over the next couple of years, a total of eight charging stations will be built in Denmark, the first one completed in Fredericia mid-2018, and a further 40 in Sweden and Norway.

COBE and Norwegian brewery LERVIG unveil their plans for an 11.000 m2 vernacular visitor center and brewery in central Stavanger, Norway. Located on the edge of the fjord, COBE and LERVIG envision a unique attraction for locals and visitors to Stavanger. A brewery will be the heart of the new building, surrounded by a visitor center, a ‘street-food’ market, a harbour bath and promenade, and a roof vegetable garden, all framed by a grid of wooden arched and publicly accessible - tailored to celebrate city life.

Last week our proposal for the German Wallpaper Museum in Kassel received an honorable mention in a competition attended by 30 international architectural practices. 

 

Located in the heart of Kassel's historic museum landscape, the 4.800 m2 museum is the first and only museum dedicated to wallpaper in the world. Acting as a gentle counterbalance to the historic context, the museum appears as a white canvas for the 23,000 wallpaper objects exhibited.

 

Resembling a roll of wallpaper, facade openings, staircases and exhibition walls have rounded corners. In this way, wallpaper becomes the focal point for the overall design concept – celebrating the museum’s state-of-the-art collection from the 15th century to the present day, including gilt-leather specimens from the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo eras as well as flocked and canvas wallpapers of the 18th century and hand-printed French panoramic wallpapers of the 19th century.

COBE and BRUT, together with ARA, UTIL and Buro MOVE, reveal the winning design for Place Schuman in Brussels, Belgium. Located in the heart of the European Quarter, in between the main institutions of the European Union, including the European Council and the European Commission, Place Schuman constitutes the entrance to the EU. 

 

The project transforms a heavily trafficked roundabout into an urban space and meeting point. Inspired by the shape of the European Parliaments’ hemicycle, a reflective roof covering an urban agora unites all citizens and institutions of the EU and transforms the European Quarter from a city for cars into a city for people.
