The relation of building entrances with the public space and entrance density is determinant regarding how everyday street life emerges within the street space. The paper proposes a methodology for capturing the liveliness or liveliness potential of streets from their configuration by considering the territorial depth of building entrances. The analytical model is built from a relational graph describing building access seen from the street towards building entrances considering the many levels of territorial depth, or in other words, the many levels between the public core space and the private entrance. © 2015, Kim Williams Books, Turin.
