Set amongst a grove of existing bottle trees (Brachychiton rupestris), the client wished to establish an Open-Air Chapel, over looking the new memorial gardens. We were commissioned to design and document the Chapel area, the adjoining carpark and the associated memorial gardens and burial areas in this new “high profile” area of the cemetery. The proposed design incorporated some terracing to cope with steep gradient, yet maintained accessibility for wheelchairs and the elderly. The gardens are currently under construction.
