Mausoleum, Barnet Cemetery & Memorial Gardens, London
The proposed Mausoleum is sited to the north of Barnet’s existing cemetery and is designed as part of a newly landscaped and contemplative environment. Whilst at Sutton Griffin Architects, Ian Blake created this mausoleum concept, which captured individual views out of the building, across water and into a new landscape – providing the opportunity for individual moments of contemplation and reflection.
The building is large enough to accommodate 1000 interned caskets within a series of twelve “petal shaped” bays that surround a central gathering space and chapel. Each bay is fully glazed at the end to enable visitors to engage with the landscape outside and feel “at one” with nature.
