Abstract:The residential street is a public space that is used daily by many people and people are connected to it for a big part of their lives. This connection influences the well-being of people and their further appreciation of the living environment. Despite the importance of the residential street, it does not receive much attention. Generally the residential street is seen as a practical space that provides accessibility to its adjacent buildings and which is a connection with other public spaces. But the residential street can mean much more for its residents and frequent users. By bringing quality into the street, the residents can be invited to be active and interact in the residential street which would be beneficial for them. But as all people have different desires and needs, the residents should be allowed to participate in the development of the residential street and appropriate it to their own wishes. Although this should happen under the supervision of an official.
