COBE's office resides on the top floor of an old paper mill on an island in central Copenhagen called, Papirøen (Paper Island). The entrance is unassuming, the space is whitewashed with the exception of the exposed concrete beams and roof trusses. The layout of the office is an open floor plan with a mixing of architects, landscape architects, urban planners and interns. Conference rooms are at one end of the space and the model room is in the back. COBE employs around 80 people currently.
Certainly one of the more astounding perks to working at COBE is that they have a communal lunch everyday. Frokost is Danish for lunch, the food is fantastic and everyone shares a table in the ground floor space below. It's an easy way to meet others around the office and better enjoy the work day. The Danes know how to eat and take pleasure in their work.
Another wild aspect to working at COBE is they have an award wining project just outside their door. Krøyers Plads is a recently completed housing project in the center of Copenhagen's harbor area. The design concept was to introduce a modern interpretation of the industrial warehouses that define this area of the city and harbor. Krøyers Plads is just on the other side of the new Inderhavnsbroen bridge, the commute to COBE's office.
