In the English county of Cornwall, a London-based architects' agency has decided to turn prison cells into hotel rooms. The project is set to open by 2019.
The future 63-room property is located on the country’s southwestern peninsula, 60 kilometers west of Plymouth. The prison was erected in the late 18th century, but closed in 1927, then turned into a tourism venue. The project is not intended to erase the area's whole historic heritage since the building will still house a museum and have themed rooms that will help visitors imagine what the past held in store at Bodmin Jail.
