Abstract [en]

     “An ordinary day on an ordinary street. Pedestrians pass on the sidewalks, children play near front doors, people sit on benches and steps, the postman makes his rounds with the mail, two passersby greet on the sidewalk, two mechanics repair a car, groups engage in conversation.”….. (Life Between Buildings, Jan Gehl)

Enhancing the quality of life and raising the tendency for living in this area, is one of the issues that this thesis is working with. Effort of this thesis is enhancing the quality of life in a neighborhood that has lots of good potentials, for ordinary life, and raising the children.
