he cemetery renovation and extension project resolves the problem of lack of intimacy during the procession: the funeral cortege used to pass through the provincial road, losing their moment of recollection due to the presence of the local traffic.
The new entrance is located on the southern side, in Via Cimitero (cemetery road), at the end of a tree-lined and calm boulevard. This arrangement makes the space fit the emotional status of the processions gathered for the final farewell.
Simplicity and ceremony. A white wall acts as a backdrop, with a canopy to protect the priest conducting the religious service.
The same space is also designed to be used for private prayers and meditation, as can be inferred by the presence of four benches shaded by four trees.

There are no words to define the concept of Nirvana, a mental state with effects in the physical and spiritual planes. This makes it difficult to explain and only those who practice meditation can understand how far they are from reaching it.

Lake Grevelingen is currently the largest tide-less salt water lake in Europe. From an ecological perspective it is necessary that in the short term an inlet is established bringing the water from the North Sea to Lake Grevelingen. For the sake of the water quality, it is important that the water flows once more: low and high tides must again have (controlled) free play, which will directly result in a revival of the wealth of authentic flora and fauna in the area.

The project implements a replicable model in each of its points: the architecture, the economic logic, the energy criteria, integrated farming practices and reforestation. It offers a rural area a number of tools that propose ways of inhabiting these sensitive forest areas with production needs, and develop an equivalent degree of integration on a social level.

The hut is located in back corner of a residential garden, nestled in a mature landscape. For the designer-owner-builder, the experience of its creation was a retreat both from work and into work – the hands-on construction process in itself was cathartic.

Three interventions in a 5000 m2 plot in a suburb of Santiago: A meditation hall (or Dojo) at the bottom of the site, a small pavilion in front of the family pool, and the refurbishment of a terrace that was virtually unusable because of high temperature and reflected light. In each case, outdoor spaces were enhanced to face the high temperatures in spring and summer.
