Modern working environments for the Office for Geodata and land register


Client: Dresden city administration


With the draft V 1941 17 for the construction of the new administrative center on Ferdinandplatz, the Dresden city council laid the foundation for the development and introduction of new working environments - the workplace of the future - in the Dresden city administration. With a view to the advancing digitization of administrative work, the increased participation of the population and the new working time models, an active process of change in relation to future working methods within the state capital of Dresden has started. This process is accompanied by the professorship for ergonomics and the knowledge architecture of the TU Dresden.

The new rooms for the Office for Geodata and land register in the WTC were selected as one of the first projects. The so-called "reality lab" designed here gives the employees of the Dresden city administration the opportunity to try out new and collaborative working environments and develop them further. Two different office spaces were planned for the new property. The cell offices in the tower area were preserved, so there were no changes to the existing structure. In the area of ​​the main building, an open working environment with various functions was created. A slightly shielded meeting area, a closed meeting room, telephone stations (flexible workplaces) and privacy areas as well as a separate tea kitchen are integrated.

The bespoke wallpapers have been realised in cooperation with Tapeten und Uhren, Dresden (
