Besides the Globe itself, C.F. Møller Architects (formerly Berg Arkitektkontor, since 2007 a part of C.F. Møller Architects) also played a major role in the design of these surrounding buildings. The architectural work encompassed the idea concept, the establishment of a competition group, the competition proposal, the local plan, and the construction, decor and signage planning. The arena is regarded as one of the best in the world, and has created one of the most famous skyline silhouettes in Stockholm.

In 2009 C.F. Møller designed a new attraction for the Globe: two glass gondolas lifting visitors up along the outside of the building, offering a splendid view of Stockholm and the start of the archipelago.
