The new-build crematorium provides a chapel for 150 people seated and 100 standing with floral tribute. The “public” and “spiritual” uses of the building (the chapel, vestry and waiting area) are separated from the crematorium process by a two meter thick sound proof wall that runs through the centre of the building. The plan form of the building derives from the need to maintain privacy between groups of mourners.
