The presentation aimed to critically discuss and analyse the carceral (prisonlike) layers of the particular design heritage that form the contemporary interior design of rooms in institutions that serves as correctional facilities; such as prisons, psychiatric hospitals and specifically so-called special residential youth homes. Moreover, it aims to shed a light on the impact carceral design may have on health and well-being and for youth who inhabit these spaces. Can design factors foster well-being and give a direction in life.
