This project is the second phase of a columbarium originally designed for Capilano View Cemetery in 1991. The new enclave accommodates up to 768 urns within granite-clad niches. Floating roofs imply a release of gravity. The space they form between the columbarium and sky is designed to create a view along the length of the site and beyond.
An underground ossuary for the interment of 300 remains is also included in the project. Above ground sits a stainless steel urn, designed as a central figure around which to hold a funeral.
As in phase one, the site is enclosed with low stone walls to give a sense of a privacy for mourners. The entire project is conceived to be a space of contemplation and meditation.
