Open for business

Dear Clients, collaborators and friends,

Cobe is closed for Corona, but open for business. Following the Danish Government’s guidelines to limit the spread of Covid-19, we have taken necessary actions to keep our colleagues, clients, collaborators and community safe.

This means for Cobe:

As many employees as possible are working from home.

Travel activities are replaced by virtual meetings.

The number of physical meetings are reduced and replaced by virtual ones.

Our café in Nordhavn is temporarily closed.

This situation has been met with an extraordinary level of energy from everybody at Cobe. Our commitment to meet each project’s obligations and to maintain each team’s productivity remain our highest priorities. We are collaborating and cooperating closer than ever, while working from our home offices across Copenhagen.

When the situation stabilizes, we are looking forward to seeing you all again. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out to us on any of our platforms for questions or business.

Best Regards,

Dan Stubbergaard and the Cobe team

Cobe to design new neighbourhood in Dortmund

Cobe has won the competition to design Dortmund’s new harbor neigbourhood, 'Hafenquartier Speicherstrasse', the transformation of the biggest channel harbor in Europe. The winning project focuses on creating a city where creativity, technology and sustainability goes hand in hand, giving new life to the abandoned industrial buildings at the harbor front. This includes the re-use of a silo and an enormous industrial 13,000 m² hall, transforming it into a new technology campus with auditoriums, workshops, exhibition spaces and foodhalls for the city’s booming tech-industry and creative start-up companies.

Make sure to visit the exhibition about the project at Studieninstitut Ruhr, Königswall 25-27, 44137 Dortmund, opening today at 6:00 pm in connection with the award ceremony.
