Psychotherapy Institute for Children and Adolescents

German Society for Behaviour Therapy in Saxony, Germany. Institute for Children and Adolescents in Dresden (2021-2022).

The new location of the institute is a freshly renovated, listed villa in Dresden-Blasewitz, Germany.

Light, colour and choice of materials play an important role in creating the right atmosphere for all age groups and the different 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, characterful building with bright, friendly, appealing and even thought-provoking interiors. The choice and use of different colours, lighting fixtures, mirrors, materials and decorative elements that tell stories 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 to be able to use it for seminars and training purposes. At the Psychotherapeutic Institute in Dresden, child and youth 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:

  • Working Office / Administration
  • Treatment patients / therapy rooms
  • Training / seminar rooms
  • Flexible uses – adaptation / change between seminar and group therapy uses
