I never believed I would be featuring a modern mortuary but there is one thing basic and minimal about this addition to Asker crematorium and chapel, built in the late nineteen fifties. Portion of the appeal to me is the colour palette consisting mostly of whites, lotions and lighter neutral colours. The framework and interiors virtually have a monochromatic truly feel. There are some really fascinating particulars going on as properly.
“One aspect of the project intrigued me throughout the layout procedure: Even although the mortuary is religiously neutral, a lot of characteristics of the creating fairly quickly presented themselves as metaphors. The proportions of the rooms, the geometry, the light, the fixtures and even the tiny stones in the concrete floors appeared to appeal to symbolic that means. I am nonetheless not confident no matter whether this facet is actually current in the building, or just brought to the surface of my thoughts by the system alone.”
