Number of employees
CEBRA is a Danish architectural office founded in 2001 by the architects Mikkel Frost, Carsten Primdahl and Kolja Nielsen. Based in Aarhus in Denmark and in Abu Dhabi in the UAE, CEBRA employs a multidisciplinary international staff of 50.
In February 2017 the CEBRA-designed Experimentarium was inaugurated, a science center in Hellerup, near Copenhagen. In 2013 The Iceberg, a multiple prize-winning housing project, was built in the revitalized harbour area in Aarhus, Denmark.
One of the Founding Partners, Mikkel Frost, often paints in watercolours cartoonish concepts of some of CEBRA´s projects and the whole collection is named "Toons". In autumn 2016 two of these watercolours have been acquired by the Museum for Architectural Drawing in Berlin, Germany. They are now part of the collection among works by Zaha Hadid, Frank Lloyd Wright, Aldo Rossi, Frank Gehry.
Most of CEBRA´s projects are within the fields of education, culture and housing.
