For my final project of second year, i had to design a bio-crematorium. These images show the development of my ideas from the initial site analysis to the rendered finished design.
This collage is all about the different spaces required in a biocrematorium and how i wanted these spaces to link together
This collage was the initial stage of research for me. It allowed me to understand, as well as give a visual aid to my reviewers, of what biocremation actually is.
Project and site introduction
GROUND FLOOR PLAN: This is where the cremation space is. Members of the funeral party are drawn up a staircase upto the 1st floor so do not enter this space
1ST FLOOR PLAN: The 1st floor consists of the waiting area, toilets and the ceremony space which leads onto a balcony that overlooks a meadow

These skecthes show the route and experience through the building
CAD sheet showing the model i made in Vectorworks and rendered in Artlantis
