“The Transitions team will be working on site for over a year and we needed an office that was good to work in and also very distinct from the prison environment. It needed to speak of the project’s core mission: to create new spaces and approaches to working with offenders, while increasing their chances of rehabilitation. All on a small budget and done in a way that meant we could involve prisoners and officers in the process. We are delighted with the results, which required a great deal of flexibility and foresight about working in a particular environment. For example, our tables were made in the prison workshop and designed with the restrictions that this bought to bear. They have become a source of pride for prisoners and a talking point for those visiting the office.”
