Fences and walls, monitoring systems, and presence of guards become increasingly popular in cotemporary Polish housing estates. Only in Warsaw there are almost 400 gated estates and guarded apartment houses. In this paper we consider: (a) factors that underlie motivation for gating, (b) attitude towards gating among people in general and, more specifically, among inhabitants of gated communities, (c) alternative ways of ensuring security - the secure-by-design architectural projects.
