Entrance to contemporary crematorium at dusk

Crematorium Architects

At WDA, we believe crematorium design and end of life architecture offers a unique opportunity to craft beautiful structures and spaces that facilitate dignified farewells.

We see crematoriums and gardens of remembrance as more than functional spaces; they should be sanctuaries for celebrating and mourning a life well-lived.

Holistic approach

It is our privilege to design crematoria, chapels that evoke a sense of serenity and reflection. We take a holistic approach, ensuring the building’s location on the ground maximises accessibility, fosters connection with nature, and complements the surrounding landscape.

The symbolic connection to the natural world provides comfort during a difficult time. We are committed to enhancing the environment through sustainable practices, incorporating both cutting-edge and traditional eco-friendly solutions.

Influencing design with meaning

Our crematorium Architects draw inspiration from various sources, including historical burial mounds and classical Greek mythology. These references add a layer of cultural and spiritual significance to non-denominational buildings. Careful consideration is given to the use of water features, natural light, building materials and colour palettes, ensuring each element plays a role in creating a peaceful and contemplative environment.
