Location: Kolding, Denmark
The Rock will be the next building in the new ‘Design City’ near the waterfront of the city of Kolding in Denmark. The location of The Rock is a site that has been abandoned since 1970. The abandoned site has evolved into a green area, and COBE, the studio in charge of this project, wants to maintain the green angle of the site. The way this is achieved is via the roof, reintroducing the green landscape to the former ecosystem on top of the building. The green angle of the building and its roof is augmented with solar cells that contribute to building’s energy needs.
