This is my home.. Nyboder (= new small houses) is a historic row house district of former Naval barracks in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark. It was planned and first built by King Christian the IV for the Royal Danish Navy and their families. The building project was started in 1631 and finished in 1795. These houses are heritage listed and still reserved for the military today. 

Originally four families would share one house and rent out the lumber room in the addict to a student. The families were poor and not welcome in other parts of Copenhagen - when the man was on the sea prostitution was a way for he women to make money. 

Today we have our own kitchen and each apartment is approximately 60 square meters. The majority of the residents are employed in the Danish navy.
