Design and construction of Reunion Island 600-convict prison.

Buildings have simple and distinctive layout. By working on different trail lines, we alternate restricted and enlarged areas, which merge with landcapes in the distance. Working and living areas are thus enhanced. The project thus creates the best possible conditions for detention, which is adapted to cultural and climatic features on the island.
