Construction begins on Falster State Prison


This week the Minister of Justice Morten Bødskov and the Mayor of Guldborgsund John Brædder dug the first spade-full of earth which marked the beginning of building on the site of the new state prison in Falster.

The upcoming state prison, designed by C.F. Møller has been designed to accommodate approximately 250 inmates.

Minister of Justice Morten Bødskov mentioned the political goals in his speech: “The prison should be organized so that the inmates upon completion of sentence do not come back. Only this way we can bring down the crime rate.”

Architect and partner in C.F. Møller, Anna Maria Indrio also gave a speech during the ceremony, where she praised the good work process.

The design of the new prison is reminiscent of the surrounding villages. The complexity lay in its intentions to provide a small, condensed urban environment with varied spatial experiences, functional density and clarity of layout that the prison’s surrounding environment offers.
