How to communicate architecture to make it comprehensible and relevant to everyone? Thanks for a great debate last Friday; Karsten Ifversen, Architecture editor at @politiken , @weisskristoffer , CEO at The Danish Architectural Press and Marc-Christoph Wagner, Editor at @louisianachannel , discussing architecture from inside and outside with COBE's founder @danstubbergaard in connection with COBE Sessions no. 3.
The Ultra-Fast Charging Stations for electric vehicles are constructed in certified wood and surrounded by trees, grasses and shrubs with the aim of enhancing biodiversity around the station. All components of the construction can be broken down into usable and recyclable materials, while the choice of wood as a building material further emphasizes the building’s sustainable design.

The Ultra-Fast Charging Station not only minimizes the charging time for an electric vehicle, but also creates a meaningful break for the driver and passenger. Photo: @coast_studio
@roskildefestivalhojskole is closely linked to the world-famous @roskildefestival , and aims to further the values of the festival through courses in music, media, leadership, politics, art, architecture, and design. The school therefore contains a variety of functions, such as workshops for the school’s artistic courses, stages, music studios, dance hall, classrooms, staff room and a lecture hall.

As part of our ongoing collaboration on the Better Living project, @ikeatoday explores the rise of the urban living room in an interview with COBE's Founder @danstubbergaard . Open and designed for sharing, these are places where everyone is welcome – an inclusive response to the challenges of growing urbanisation. Read the interview through the link in our bio. Interested in delving into the concept, make sure to get a copy of our book, Our Urban Living Room, published by @arviniusorfeus . Photo: @coast_studio

COBE's EV charging stations consist of a series of structural “trees”. They feature with canopies much like the crowns of trees that offers shade and protection while defining a green, calming atmosphere. A wild contrast to a traditional gas station where lines of vehicles and the smells of gas fumes and car exhaust are the norm. Photo: @coast_studio
@koegenordstation is not only a sustainable traffic hub for the public transport of the entire Copenhagen region connecting high-speed trains, local trains and the Køge Bay Motorway, but also a distinctive landmark in the area and symbol of Køge and Denmark's strive towards a sustainable, green and CO2 neutral future.

@thesilocph among the wild nature of the undeveloped Nordhavn. In time, this left-over industrial area will become a neigbourhood defined by water and recreational landscapes, an infrastructure for bicycles and pedestrians, and cultural urban spaces and destinations. Photo: @coast_studio
Based on a sustainable rethink of the conventional gas station, the Ultra-Fast Charging Station for electric vehicles – inaugurated today in the Danish city of Fredericia – is designed to recharge the batteries of both the vehicles and drivers. The station is constructed in certified wood and surrounded by trees, grass and shrubs selected in corporation with the Danish Society of Nature Conservation ( @danmarksnatur ) with the aim of enhancing biodiversity around the station. All building components can be disassembled and reused. Photo: @coast_studio
