Text description provided by the architects. The resoluteness of the world which aims at the interior is partly removed. A new and more intensive interaction with the surrounding nature is aimed at for the youngsters. The open structure stimulates the daily shifts between living, learning and recreation.

The client asked for a building which should help the youngsters to return to society, because the youngsters only stay for a while. It’s a time-out. The design does not express permanency but the opposite: it is an expression of temporality, like the stay of the youngsters.

The concept aims at an open, transparent building between the closed prison and the outside world. Visitors can throw a glance at the prison life and the youngsters can look outside, the society in which they will return later on.
