Cobe's new addition to one of Copenhagen's most significant historic boulevards fits in and stands out

Completing a vacant corner site along one of the most historic boulevards in central Copenhagen, established in the 1700’s as the King’s road leading from the city center to Frederiksberg Palace, Frederiksberg Alle 41 adapts to its immediate listed surroundings and enhances the unique cultural heritage of the area. The building on one hand fits in, and on the other hand, it stands out.

In addition to becoming a new infrastructural node for public transport, built on top of a metro station, Frederiksberg Allé 41 is also a social and cultural focal point in the neighborhood- with its food and cultural functions. It is a new gateway to the neighborhood and its nearby theaters, museums, and parks, and also a generator of urban life, reinforcing the area’s position as an vibrant and important destination within the Danish capital.

Karen Blixens Plads wins AZ Awards 2021

Karen Blixens Plads is the people's choice winner in AZ Awards 2021 - selected from more than +1,200 entries from 57 countries.

Azure Magazine elaborates on the award: "Boasting a resplendent topography, Karen Blixens Plads in Copenhagen is both a 20,000-squaremetre public space and a parking lot large enough for 2,000 bicycles. Architect Dan Stubbergaard of local firm Cobe achieved this feat by stacking one program element on top of the other. On the surface, the square is an undulating landscape, half hardscrabble, half green, and perfect for bike rides or summertime strolls. But in key locations, the space is punctuated with whimsical circles to reveal semi-submerged parking lots beneath the artificial mounds. Karen Blixens Plads is a climate park, too: During heavy storms, when nobody’s biking anyway, the storage will become a massive rainwater collector."
