Abstract: The participation in architectural design understands involvement of different stakeholders in the process of defining an architectural problem. The result is creating an architectural concept with social significance for the users. Considering the identity of living space, certain similarities arise as an important issue regarding the coherency of built structure. Therefore the importance of half-private space becomes an important aspect of well-defined neighbourhood. This paper presents a research where students, dwellers and local municipality, all stakeholders from different areas work together on a participatory action. In order to fulfil the problematic of the usage of half private spaces, the neighbourhood on the border of the city is emphasized. The phenomena of emerging city border neighbourhoods appear in the period of industrialization of the city of Skopje. Different schools from different area of expertise are involved in the educational process because education nowadays has global influence. The students have learned how to create and use analytical tools in the process of creating a program which has social significance for the inhabitants. A common topic is established the importance of half-private spaces. Beside the students as a part in this project, the Municipality and dwellers also benefit from this education process. Governing in a smaller scale as a part of the city, the Municipality also becomes a part of the transformation of the contemporary Balkan city. Dwellers could realize that their half-private spaces can get new social significance and become social condenser.
