Web browsing led me to some innovative Danish housing developments.

Kingo Houses is a housing development designed by architect Jørn
Utzon in Helsingør, Denmark. The development consists of 60 L-shaped
houses based upon the design of traditional Danish farmhouses with
central courtyards and those of Chinese and Islamic dwellings. 1958

The Fredensborg Houses (Danish: Fredensborghusene) form a housing
complex in natural surroundings on the outskirts of the small town of
Fredensborg. houses open out onto a central court but are protected
from the surroundings by their outer wall 63 units,1963

Mountain Dwellings is a building in Copenhagen, consisting of
apartments above a multi-story car park. The apartments scale the
diagonally sloping roof of the parking garage, from street level to
11th floor, creating an artificial, south facing 'mountainside'. Each
apartment has a "backyard" on the roof of the property in front and
below it. The resulting courtyard penthouses are an attempt to balance
"the splendours of the suburban backyard with the intensity of an
urban lifestyle. 80 units, 2008
