CoBe combines architecture, urban planning, landscaping, construction management and design, integrates in the creations, draws the ability to correct ruptures, to create new links, to look to the future through its cross skills with benevolence and confidence.
Created in 2002 by Alexandre Jonvel, Raphael Denis, and Martin Lemerre, CoBe has expanded with a landscape partner, Luc Moneger in 2011, and a construction managing partner, Fabrice Taillandier in 2017. In 2021 CoBe is expanding its field of action even further by celebrating the opening of its design division.
CoBe creates links: designing the city is about freeing up space, optimizing its use, recycling, and reusing. We aim to insert this vision in each project, from the first ideas and sketches. Our vision thinks the link, envisions the landscape in the landscape, the city in the city.
Designing and thinking spaces means to observe and understand the dynamics in order to erase the splits. It is about the vitality, the sustainability of the links between territories and between users.
In Paris, Oporto, Bordeaux, CoBe works with many territories that surround these cities, all of which claim a history, a singular culture, a landscape tone, a practice of architecture and construction, a way of life of its inhabitants.
CoBe is perpetually being enhanced by the context of its projects, sharing its experiences to enrich its practice.
The agency constantly builds its working methodology with its partners, its sponsors, from the perspective of responsibility, listening, and co-construction.
This is the sense of commitment of the 80 employees who make up CoBe’s multidisciplinary teams. Balancing, creating, protecting, enhancing, projecting links, by creating spaces of the common, more logical, more creative, fairer.
