An understated and classically elegant building form houses a new crematorium for the town of Thun. The architecture and landscape work closely together to create a space dedicated to the contemplation of the transience of human existence. Internal, airy gardens grant a serene atmosphere, and the warm and pleasant private spaces bring solace to visitors.
