BOARD’s competition entry “High and Dry” for the extension of the District Office in Görlitz, Germany, reached the final round. The best 12 projects out of 69 entries were chosen as finalists.

BOARD proposed an elongated administration building inside the block with three wings and three bridges ensuring that in the future all departments of the enlarged district office are accessible from the entrance “high and dry”. Easy orientation for guests and employees within the entire building complex is ensured by a connecting first floor providing access to all other buildings of the administrative campus barrier-free.
