The crematorium is located on a flat surface – in a field by the forest. Mass concept is designed is a rather sensitive manner – it represents a shallow hill risen from the surface. Interior spaces are designed as cosy and comforting. Crematorium is designed with a metaphor of a burial mound covered with white linen. The volume of the building and its access spaces are separated by embankments of the ground. The structure of the roof is reminiscent of a ritual blanket that covers architectural volume and tailor it into surrounding ground. Crematorium building is clear from a distant perspective and becomes the epicenter of the ritual, which is equally easy to accept and release those who arrive. It is a place of emotional discharge and a quiet transformation subordinate to the eternal time and the experience of eternity.
