Detalhes

Elvas Correctional Centre is part of a vast PFI programme undertaken by the Portuguese Ministry of Justice for infrastructure renovation.

Buildings distribution and fencing schemes are pre-determined by an efficient security model that had to be followed, but innovative approach to topography and landscape turn into a challenged process.

The buildings are set within a squared fence, strongly oriented by a central axis following the cardo-decummanus, as it were a Roman military camp. Pavilions are conceived in mono-pitched roofs fully clad in light metal sheeting.
