Juvenile detention pavilion in Maasberg, Netherlands by UArchitects

Article source: UArchitects

TIME – OUT

Unit 6 of “JJI De Hunnerberg, De Maasberg” in Overloon is converted from a prison for adults into an autonomously functioning juvenile detention institution. This is the first prison in the Netherlands where youngsters are treated in small groups of ten instead of twelve. So each youngster gets more treatment and coaching. The buildings are renovated and two new living rooms have been added. A new pavilion for education, visitors and offices is the main part of the masterplan.
