A House for Prisoners
MetadataShow full item record
The House for Prisoners is a small prison institution, located in Eiksmarka, Norway. It houses a very distinct type of prisoner with psychosocial disabilities. They are usually isolated in prison due to their aggressive behaviour. The proposal of The House for Prisoners is to hopefully create a better alternative for these isolated individuals. It aims to create good spatial conditions where individuals get psychiatric surveillance, activation and meaningful social interaction. They will be protected –from themselves, and from others. The overall aim is that the institution should have a de-isolating and normalizing effect on the individual, and from there make a transition to a psychiatric hospital easier.
