P6 project, bio-crematorium

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.

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
