About Bredalsparken and the Phønix houses
Bredalsparken is the creation of two skilled architects who, in the 1950s, established one of Hvidovre's many fine buildings. The houses between Claus Petersens Allé and Arnold Nielsens Boulevard were built in steps from 1949-1960. The construction is designed by Svenn Eske Kristensen who emphasized light, space and green areas for the residents. In 1998, the planting between the blocks won "Byens grønne blad", a recognition from Friluftsrådet (the Outdoor Council). The area looks like a park, and it’s a fine example of how to combine an exciting construction with green surroundings.
The Phønix houses on Brostykkevej also tell their part of the Hvidovre story. They were some of the first standard houses in Denmark – a small house for "low-income" families. The houses were designed by the company "A/S Phønix" in the 1920s.
