COBE is an architectural firm based in Copenhagen and Berlin. Founded by Danish architect Dan Stubbergaard and German architect Vanessa Miriam Carlow in 2005, the practice has been particularly successful within the area of urban planning but also made a number of award-winning designs of buildings and urban spaces. The name of the practice is an acronym for the two cities the two founders are coming from, COpenhagen and BErlin.


COBE was founded in 2005 by Danish architect Dan Stubbergaard and German architect Vanessa Miriam Carlow. In 2006 the firm won the Golden Lion at the 10th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale for the project CO-Evolution which was made in collaboration with three other young Danish practices.

In March 2009 the firm won the large international competition for a masterplan for the North Harbour area in Copenhagen.[1] This success has been followed by a number of other wins in planning competitions, such as those of the North Campus area in Copenhagen (2011), the Central Station area in Aarhus and Lund Science Village in Lund, Sweden. The practice has also designed a number of buildings and urban spaces.
