The prison in Maastricht

The prison in Maastricht, together with the Bijlmerbajes prison, was the first prison in the Netherlands to be built on the basis of the Prisons Act. As such, it focused on rehabilitation, which meant the ending of solitary confinement and the introduction of personal assistance of a positive nature.

The prison in Maastricht is twelve storeys high. It has dark brown brick walls and steel window frames. Concrete edging on the facade marks the windows on each floor. The windows are set diagonally in the facade, so that they form an angled pattern along the sides of the building. On one side, a square central extension protrudes from the facade which houses the lift shafts and staircases. Throughout the building, the floor tiles show which section of the prison you are in: the offices have light stone floors and in the cell areas there are dark brown floor tiles. In addition to the areas for offices and cells, there are also workspaces, relaxation areas, etc.

We recommend cooperating with a Dutch partner for more information.
