Contra Costa County Juvenile Justice Center
KMD Architects
Today's architectural photograph is a shot of a corridor in the Contra Costa Juvenile Justice Center I shot for KMD Architects of San Francisco.

This detention facility worked on the "nuturing mother" principle, where they cared for the juvenile detainees providing positive reinforcement, counseling and rehabilitation. You can see how every aspect of the facility is designed to advance these principles and goals through the use of color, form and texture while still serving their function as a detention facility.
