Fredensborg Housing development


Fredensborg Housing development
Architect: Jørn Utzon
Address: Bakkedraget, Fredensborg, Danemark
Investor:Dansk Samvirke

This cluster of individual houses were created to cater for Danes who have spent a long time outside Denmark. People serving in the Diplomatic corps, engineers working in foreign lands, etc. who had little social contact with persons in Denmark, after having spent most of their working life outside of their home country.
The architecture of the buildings, that also house a common building with entertainment facilities and a restaurant, were inspired by a variety of sources, among which were the adobe cities of the Berbers in the Atlas mountains of Northern Africa and courtyard houses in China.
