CEBRA is sustainable through cultural and climatic adaption
CEBRA is people friendly architecture
CEBRA is architecture with attitude

CEBRA is a Danish architectural office based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, working on cultural, educational and housing projects.
The office was founded in 2001 in Aarhus, Denmark by the architects Mikkel Frost, Carsten Primdahl and Kolja Nielsen. It currently employs an international staff of 50 people with multidisciplinary skills and one strong passion in common – architecture.

Social responsibility and user needs are the creative fuel for CEBRA. The admired traditional Emirati cultural heritage and local building traditions are translated into contemporary, regional and sustainable architecture.

That is why CEBRA’s architecture is often called people friendly. It merges human empathy and a strong architectural expression in each project. It adapts to local and climatic contexts, social environments and users while supporting sustainability.
CEBRA’s working process is based on dialogue, collaboration and content-driven interdisciplinarity.
