Thurrock Crematorium

Thurrock, Essex

This concept design for a new Crematorium in Thurrock provides two chapels of remembrance beneath a 'floating' wing shaped vaulted roof. The symmetrical design subtlety separates circulation and views between mourners in each chapel and maintains a dignified distance between those arriving and leaving between each service.

Each chapel benefits from private views into its own landscaped courtyard which leads on to a garden of remembrance concealed behind screens.

Researching for this project was an interesting, and at times difficult, emotional journey. We had to contemplate head-on the emotional, cultural and practical issues which surround the passing away of a loved one.

In developing the design we had to ensure that we respected the responsibility of producing a building which would come to signify, and hopefully, help to come to terms with the final farewells for so many people. Designcubed
