"Postplatz" Dresden

The “Postplatz” ( Post Office Square ) in Dresden with its building ensemble comprising Semper Opera, “Zwinger”, residential “Schloss” and Cathedral is both a major traffic intersection and one of the most important Squares in Dresden. The town planning concept, which has developed out of a design competition, is underpinned by a zoning plan and will be successively implemented.
Within this premise, WINKELS CONCEPTS developed a lighting concept in five light levels, that could be implemented within the different construction phases. The necessary lighting has been conceived to emphasis the city character of the planning.
For the lighting of the major thoroughfares including the tram lines and overhead cables, the new “Mirror Reflection Suspension Light” was installed which had been especially developed for this project to ensure a glare-free, uniform light source.
