Finally, on 30 September 2017, after almost three years of planning and construction, the Design Hotel Liberty in Offenburg’s former prison opens its doors with 38 rooms and suites, a premium restaurant and a very special atmosphere. The planners at Konrad Knoblauch GmbH from Markdorf on Lake Constance showed a strong sense for the needs of the future guests. They managed to incorporate the sensitive heritage of the jail into the new hotel using a light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek approach. Few people can truly empathise. In their attempt to try to understand the world of a prisoner, the planners at Knoblauch discovered something that is not always easy in everyday life: the ability to see the positive side in everything.
