The House of Food Culture in Copenhagen will bring together food lovers and cooking aficionados in a modern, mixed-use space. Designed by a team of four partners, including COBE Architects, the new development will feature food stalls, workshop spaces and educational facilities on the two lower levels, while accommodating 30 housing units on the upper floors.
The L-shaped building will occupy a prominent location on the tree-lined Frederiksberg Alle, one of the most significant historic avenues in the Danish capital. It will comprise two levels of public spaces dedicated to culinary experiences and food, and 30 new housing units above. Different types of housing for families, students and singles will be distributed across five brick townhouses, including that accommodating the House of Food Culture.
This project – to be built on top of a new metro station in the city – will be realized in collaboration with Union Holding and NRE Denmark, who previously worked with COBE on transforming a tall historic grain silo in Denmark into housing and exhibition space.
