Color and Lighting Concept Villa Regerstrasse
Psychotherapy Institute for Children and Adolescents
German Society for Behavior Therapy in Saxony, Germany. Institute for Children and Adolescents in Dresden (2021-2022)
The institute’s new location is a newly renovated, landmarked villa in Dresden-Blasewitz, Germany.
Light, color, and material choices play an important role in creating the right atmosphere for all age groups and the various scenarios of discussions, presentations, and meetings that take place at the institute. As those responsible for the interior design, it was of utmost importance for us to balance the heaviness of the old, charming building with bright, friendly, appealing and even thought-provoking interiors. The choice and use of different colors, lighting fixtures, mirrors, materials and decorative elements tell stories that give the reception, offices and therapy rooms their own identity. The impressive staircase is celebrated as a special space that connects the floors. The dark basement needed special attention so that it could be used for seminars and educational purposes. At the Psychotherapeutic Institute in Dresden, child and adolescent psychotherapists and psychological psychotherapists are trained with a strong practical orientation. In addition, outpatient psychotherapeutic treatments are offered in the institute’s outpatient clinic.
Requirements for the current use are as follows:
- Work office / administration
- Treatment of patients / therapy rooms
- Training / seminar rooms
- Flexible uses – adaptation / change between seminar and group therapy uses
