The Borrowdale Unit is a
34 bed accommodation block
at Port Phillip Prison, Victoria. This unit was the prototype for the development of the Corrections Victoria Fire and Safety Cell Guidlines.

The building breaks new
ground in prison buildings as it has been designed inside out.
The internal finishes are precast concrete while the external has an insulated metal cladding.
The result being cooler
internal spaces and reduced operational costs.
