Peneteniary Heidering - Berlin


With a capacity for 648 minimum- and medium-security inmates, the new Heidering prison had three key considerations that shaped the design concept for the prison: compact buildings, short connecting routes and a short security perimeter. Creation of the spatial conditions make for a secure, humane prison regime and optimum working conditions. The complex has three X-shaped facilities and also includes a area of buildings that serve as work facilities. The establishment of distinct, high quality open areas for periods of exercise and recreation,have led to a roofed glass walkway connecting all parts of the prison. The facility began accepting prisoners in April 2013.
