The temporary partnership of RCR Aranda Pigem Vilalta S.P and COUSSÉE & GORIS architects appointed OMGEVING as a subcontractor to work out the technical details of the work required around the new Holsbeek crematorium. The land around the crematorium comprises around 5 hectares.
The layout included a parking area, a field for scattering ashes and a variety of areas for urns and a number of columbaria. Large embankments shield the area from the nearby regional road. An orchard and an expanse of water containing water plants create an atmosphere for silent contemplation. In consultation with the architects, materials were proposed and paving and details designed that connect seamlessly with the building.
