This work refers to my home village - Hellmonsödt, which is situated in Upper-Austria, north of the provincial capital Linz. Its close location to the conurbation of Linz combined with pictorial green landscape and rural ambience of the village, creates an attractive place to live. Due to the new construction of a provincial nursing home, which will be placed in the northeast outskirts of the village centre, the green spaces in between the site and the village will be developed into residen-tial areas. This project includes the design masterplan for this new residential area, which will connect the nursing home with the village, furthermore it investigates and develops detailed design of its housing typologies. Addressing the single-family housing typology, which dominates Austria¿s countryside, the masterplan tries to establish the more atypical typologies, such as higher densities in area-saving, low-rise forms of housing.
