On the outskirts of Copenhagen lies a curious and idiosyncratic sight; Brøndby Haveby, a collection of houses nestled inside a grid of perfectly circular greenery.
Brøndby Garden City, Denmark is a truly unique place. Eco-friendly urban planning initiative, the circular garden city consists of clusters of houses, that are strategically arranged to form circles. This gives the city a breathtaking aerial view.
Besides community gardens around the area, the houses in Brøndby Haveby have huge amounts of land for yards and luscious gardens. This allows residents to be surrounded by greenery and peacefully relish the solitude, away from the loud and busy city life.
Residents are also encouraged to indulge in hobbies. Total solitude isn’t the main attraction nor the main reason, why the circular layout was chosen for these gardens. On the contrary, the circular shape was intended to encourage those, who choose to reside in the garden city to build a harmonious community among each other in the form of friendly social interactions. While the houses are separated by large yards, the circular shape still ensures close and cozy proximity between residents.
