Abstract

The new housing plan in South Africa promotes the development of medium density and mixed housing developments. The nature and organisation of the physical characteristics of this type of housing has been identified as one of the key factors that could influence the success of these developments. However, while there is a growing need for empirical research in the built environment discipline, there are very few tools or methods for measuring the built environment, especially in terms of the physical design characteristics. In order to address this, a housing measurement tool was developed for assessing the physical characteristics of selected medium density mixed housing developments and determine medium density mixed housing's relevance for the implementation of the housing plan. It was found that the tool provides a useful mechanism to built environment professionals to assess the physical characteristics of these housing types.


Enige ruimte, hetsy dit 'n interne ruimte, eksterne ruimte of 'n landskap is - kan beskou word as 'n plek sodra mense betekenis daaraan heg. Die proses wat betrokke is by die skep van betekenisvolle ruimtes of sin van plek, word nie algemeen toegepas in ontwikkelingsbeplanning nie. In hierdie artikel word die gebruik van 'n multidissiplinêre benadering as belangrik beskou vir die identifisering van verskillende betekenisse wat aan die Vredefort Koepel Wêrelderfenisgebied geheg word. Daar word ook 'n metodologie voorgestel vir die assessering van hierdie betekenisse as 'n hulpmiddel vir 'n toepaslike ontwikkelingsbenadering met betrekking tot sulke betekenisvolle plekke.
