Research center CibicWorkshop and cooperative Comodo collaborated with an Italian High Security Prison, to develop the Freedom Room, a micro-apartment fashioned after a jail cell.

Freedom Room, a project by Aldo Cibic, Tommaso Corà, Marco Tortoioli Ricci and Spoleto’s correctional facility, is a 96-square-foot apartment that presents an option for temporary and social housing, hostels, and hotels. CibicWorkshop and Comodo worked with inmates who have first-hand knowledge of tiny living spaces, to design an apartment that has all the basics and is functional and flexible.
