Munksøgård is an eco-village in the outskirt of the city of Roskilde located about 25 km west of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is an integrated part of a newly developed neighbourhood named ”Trekroner”.

The development has been designed to provide for diversity in housing sizes, ownership types and in support of different age groups.
The development includes 100 row houses of different sizes and accommodates about 225 children, youths and adults in a socially lively community.
The community is subdivided into five dwelling groups each of 20 row houses. Each dwelling group has their own common house for joint activities (common dinners, meetings, parties etc).
The dwelling groups have different types of ownership. One dwelling group is privately owned as single family houses, and one is a co-operative association (the residents own the houses collectively as an association but at the same time the residents also own privately a share of the house they occupy). Three of the dwelling groups are owned by Roskilde Building Association and these houses are for rent. Who moves into the rented houses is under the control of the residents. One of the three dwelling groups is only for young people, one is only for seniors, and one is open for all age groups.
