Pitkin County Jail
Aspen, Colorado - Pitkin County
Historic Public Community Facility
Jail and Communications Building Renovation
The Pitkin County Jail received a special citation from the American Correctional Association for its Secure and Functional Design. The Master Control area, which includes a city and/or county dispatch center, incorporates clerestory views to alleviate an enclosed feeling for the staff.
Z-Group Architects succeeded in designing a secure facility which met the Sheriff Department’s philosophy of a humanistic approach to corrections. This is a jail which integrates with a civic plaza and the strong architecture of a historic community.
