The present study discusses the possibility of facilitating coexistence between user groups in an urban space by implementing clear demar- cations. This study reflects upon the future Enghave Plads and the alcoholics affiliated with the former Enghave Plads. Due to the construc- tion of a new metro station on Enghave Plads the square will in the future perform the function of an urban space dominated by commuters; room for movement. This is the primary need that has been taken into consideration by Københavns Kommune and the alcoholics are because of this prioritisation being excluded from the square. To re-integrate the alcoholics on the future Enghave Plads it is of great importance to involve them in the design of a territory that will provide them with privacy, which they depend on in terms of being able to coexist with other user groups. Based on theories concerning the interaction between humans and the materials surround- ing them in urban spaces, a greater insight is provided concerning how to ensure the territory being embedded by the alcoholics and the addi- tional groups. To understand this interaction the theories of Jan Gehl, Dag Østerberg and Zygmund Baumann has been accounted for and included in the analysis of the study. The study demonstrates that coexistence can only happen if both the alco- holics and the additional groups tolerate the ter- ritorial design.
