This final project includes an analysis and a programme proposal for the area Bergsbrunna södra. The area is situated along the railway between Uppsala – Stockholm, just south of Uppsala city. A new railway station is planned here, which make the area attractive as residential area. There are several values to take into consideration when developing an area. An extensive analysis and valuation may define and protect different characters and values, and also find the places most suitable to build upon. The area consists of three separate characters of landscape: the wide open cultivated fields, the hilly wooden ground and the more varying little valley. There are visual, cultural, social and ecological values to preserve. The south part of the area is woods with high natural values that borders to a national park in the natural forest of Lunsen. Large parts of the area have been cultivated for a long time and thre still is a farm. There are several traces of the history in the landscape. The farmbuildings and their close surroundings clearly shows how the area has been used. The people living in housing areas next to the farm use the old gravel roads for walking in the recreative and aesthetically attractive surroundings. When planning the area consideration also must be taken to Uppsala city's vision of "the town on the plain". The open plain and the clearly visible border between town and countryside are of importance. It also motivates why vegetation boundarys should be protected. A structural plan with drafts and guidelines for Bergsbrunna södra, on the basis of the analysis, has been developed. The plan presents two separate housing areas with different characters. • One is called "The block city" and is placed on the flat open agricultural area next to the railroad. The quarters are a checked pattern in a small scale. There are both one-family houses, twofamily houses and buildings with several households. The character proposal is a small town, where the streets are important social areas. • The other area is called "The natural city". It is situated in the pine wood. The natural character gives the structure to this area. The roads follow the terrain and the buildings are carefully placed on the hilly grounds. The goal is to keep the natural character and enhance the impression of the terrain.
