To be fair, this isn't just a prison but also contains courts, but even then it is the most beautiful court building I've ever seen. It accomodates 205 prisoners.

College dorm rooms should be that nice. It actually looks like a very comfortable little room.

I think it is, but it's got grating and maybe even glass on the outside.

Wow, that's awesome. Most prisons and jails tend to be architectural blights on the landscape, but not this one. I seriously wonder what psychological effects the architecture might have on the moods of the prisoners?
