Crownhill crematorium

IMG_6870

A very enthousiastic and inspired manager Angela Abbott told us all about the crematorium in Milton Keynes. The project was undertaken by the former Milton Keynes Council’s own Architectural Department (ArchitectureMK). The design was conceived with the designteam by Adrian Morrow.

The crematorium breathes a  spiritual and tranquil atmosphere and it was clearly inspired by Louis Kahn’s Kimball Art Museum with its cycloid form concrete roof vaults.

The careful materialisation and attention to detail is very visible and it is carried through in the site. The existing grounds have been developed into a wildlife garden and the building itself was developed with sustainability in mind. Many of the building materials are sustainable and principal spaces are naturally ventilated by means of windcatchers.
