This interesting competition invited submissions for a new crematorium building in Hatfield. Our design proposals presented a sequence of spatial experiences that would respect the sensitivity of visitors. Through carefully-thought-out access and circulation strategies as well as the purposeful modelling of space, light and acoustics, we intended to create an appropriate ambience for each functional space.
The building design was interlinked with the proposals for external circulation and landscaping with due respect for visitors from the moment of arrival to departure.
Barker Associates were placed third out of nine bidders.
