Capilano View Cemetery

This project is to be nestled into a forested setting at Capilano View Cemetery, in West Vancouver, Canada. It features an open air pavilion for outdoor ceremonies, an underground vault for up to 500 ash remains, memorial tablets for names and dates, and a moss mound for underground ash scattering.

The project also includes sky vaults for interment of ashes up amongst the trees. Evocative of birdhouses, they set the tone for a design language which is repeated in the pavilion, that of a large protective roof, floating in the forest.
