Dutch firm CF Møller Architects has won a competition to design a new state prison on the island of Falster in Denmark.

The practice won the competition in collaboration with engineering company Rambøll Denmark, Marianne Levinsen Landscape, design firm aggebo & henriksen and consultants CRECEA.

The design proposes a low, urban structure centred around leisure and working facilities, connected through several streets and a central square.

The design concept also incorporates sports facilities, areas for animal husbandry and landscaping.

The complex is part of a long-term restructuring plan and will replace the 1859-built state prison in Vridsløselille.
