These ‘Garden City’ houses look like they are from another world which its architecture so different than ours as usual. Brøndby Haveby or Brøndby Garden City is located just outside Copenhagen, Denmark. Architect Erik Mygind designed the concept in 1964.
They look otherworldly with an unusual circular design
This circular design allows increasing social interaction between residents. In addition to that, these large yards provide a retreat from the noisy and densely populated city and also give the opportunity to indulge in the hobby of growing plants and crops.
People don’t actually live in the Brøndby Garden City
This gorgeous, if not otherworldly, “garden city” is located just outside Copenhagen, Denmark. Each community features allotments that resemble a pizza when seen from a bird’s eye view. And it’s not actually a place where people can stay permanently. Redditor Zerak Tul explained:
“It’s not actually a place where people live. They’re allotment gardens – i.e. a place for people who live in apartments in the city to have a little plot of land where they can do some gardening in the spring and summer months. Generally, there are laws that prohibit people from living in them full time. And the houses are tiny, often meant be half shed/storage for gardening tools and just as a place to sit and have a cup of coffee in rainy weather.”

The houses are for rent but residents are only allowed to live in the community during the warmer months from April to October.
