Rehabilitative Prison Design

Prison narrow


We are honored to be part of this groundbreaking Innovate UK -funded project researching design tools for healthy prison environments.

Building upon the RSA’s (Royal Society for the Arts) Future Prison project, we are working with Matter Architecture and policy expert Rachel O’Brien to research the environmental psychology of well-being in prisons, and advise the Ministry of Justice on simple steps to design more rehabilitative prisons. After conducting a Space Audit of HMP Berwyn, the most recently completed British prison, the project team are at work on an evidence-based design guide, expected to launch in December 2017.
