New Access and Columbarium in Madrid, Spain by Muka Arquitectura

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Article source: Muka Arquitectura

The local goverment of Lozoya put us in charge of the intervention in the closing and enlargement of the Municipal Cemetery. We had to work on the separating element between, according to Platon, the visible world and the intelligible world, that is, the earthly world from the eternal one. The half-ruined clay wall which needed to be repaired separated both physically and visually the two different worlds, as if both of them could be understood through the wall.

New Access and Columbarium in Robregordo, Spain by Muka Arquitectura

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Article source: Muka Arquitectura

The project  located at Robregordo´s cemetery, in Madrid´s mountain range,  satisfies the need of a new adition.

The access to the cemetery, since its last intervention, does not have any cover place to wait for the arrival of neither coffin or ashes. The preexisting access consists in three main elements: the gate of entrance,  the perimetral wall made of irregular granite blocks  as a limit between  outside and inside, and two cypresses symmetrically placed at the entrance to the cemetery.

The funerary volume is located between the existing boxes of niches and creates a compact and dense piece of stone that completes the horizontal landscape of this area of the cementery.

A vault is created to preserve and protect the memory of the deceased people and, at the same time has to generate an intimate and quite space for the family. This way, we propose a dense box of horizontal tiles of grey stone which is externally perforated by only two hollows: the door and the cross.

ASIAIN HALL CEMETERY EXTENSION in Navarre, Spain by Iñigo Esparza Arquitecto

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: Iñigo Esparza Arquitecto

The Town council of Asiain, a small community located in the municipality of Olza, proposed a simple program when decided to build an extension for the old cemetery. An open air area containing the burial niches and a side construction with the autopsy room and a storage unit.

The limited dimensions of the cemetery and the inexistence of a covered space to provide shade and shelter from the harshness of weather, encouraged to transform the new access into a small pavilion. A prismatic volume, link between the old and the new area, not only used as a roofed platform but also as a module containing the indoor program.

Sansepolcro Cemetery in Arezzo, Italy by Studio Zermani e Associati

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: Studio Zermani e Associati

Sansepolcro, the halfway point between Santiago de Compostela and Jerusalem, and birthplace of Piero della Francesca, is surrounded by the hills on the border between Tuscany and Umbria that the painter transferred into his own pictorial space. Piero often observed the landscape from inside: for him, the background was important, as was the point of view. The extraordinary perspective application of his images imposes the relationship between eye, architecture or monument, and landscape with didactic clarity. The landscape of Sansepolcro is a place recognised as far back as the description given by Pliny: “Beautiful is the aspect of the region: you can imagine it as an immense amphitheatre, such that only nature is able to create.”
