Settlement expansion, apart from education, social organization, economy, transport and culture is a key challenge for growing communities. Settlement expansion is to keep the residents in the community and region. Thus communities organize their growth including new settlement expansion. This Master Thesis deals with growing settlements and how could the settlement organization and open space area support the everyday life in the village Haag in Lower Austia. I research the qualities of housing, construction and organization of open space areas on the parcel and the socio-economic organization on the plot. The quality characteristics are based on the landscape and open space planing theory. The main part of this thesis are the detailed surveys of 10 plots, and mapping of the building- and open space area structure. My focus is on the structures and organization that influences the everyday life of people. The organization of the plots and the open space areas, capable aging building and space structures, such as accessibility: education and public utilities, the choice of paths are made visible and analyzed in this work. The findings from these surveys and mapping shows the everyday opportunities of residents and make deficits and problems visible. The detailed surveys and gained knowledge form the basis for the planning proposal and measures. The proposal includes planning alternatives to free-standing house and improvements for linear construction, taking into account the described everyday-life supportive qualities.
