“Architecture as a mirror of its time“ proposes an optimal functional structure of buildings also for prisons. Penal institutions are supposed to attend to their task of social rehabilitation in a modern, objective and unobtrusive way, but especially without posing a direct nuisance for its neighborly environment.
Exemplary for that is the modern and newly built penal institution Augsburg-Gablingen. It is equipped with modern security facilities; and with its overall concept it supports not only the work of its employees but will have a positive influence on the term of imprisonment and social rehabilitation of its detainees due to its bright and friendly architecture.
We secure the various sensitive areas of a penal institution:
Gate guards / head office with interlock systems for motor vehicles and persons – the gate guard and the interlock system of a prison mark the transit from Outside to Inside. Every visitor and employee is received and checked at this point. Vehicles driving in also undergo thorough inspection. In this part of the gate guard all security technology is being supervised and the different systems are brought together. All the more important is the absolute protection of the gate guard and the interlock systems from an attack from the outside, as well as from the inside.
