Wooden modules
in exposed wood quality

The wall and ceiling surfaces are finished in exposed wood quality with colourless paint. All rooms have double-wing, white plastic windows with underlighting and electric shutters. The heat is distributed via two convectors in the living room and bathroom. Each wood module has its own electrical sub-distribution. The furniture was produced and brought in by the correctional institution itself.

The bathrooms are equipped to a simple standard with a washbasin, WC and shower as well as a towel radiator and exhaust air. The entire bathroom fit-out had already taken place in the factory, so that only the hallway-side media for supplying the room had to be connected on site.
