The solution incorporates criteria that become the creators of urban design: the evaluation of appropriate criteria on the size of building area, evaluation of "optimal" range, providing quality between the individual and the collective, the correct insolation, as well as the orientation of housing units, providing views - both landscape and privacy. In addition to location the quality of life is becoming increasingly important: how we spend our days, how we define our leisure time, what is our job and  the relationship between leisure time and work are the issues that are crucial in designing modern living environments. As a consequence of this diversity in demand, new types of living concepts are appearing, their common feature is an openness of the system, capable of change and adaptation.
