STATIE STUIFDUIN A new crematorium for Lommel

This project concerns a new crematorium building on a site alongside the main cemetery in Lommel.
One of the main themes in the design is 'the journey'. The ceremonial rite that is typical of saying farewell to a loved one. The crematorium is more than a building, it is a site that accompanies one on this journey. As if walking through an exhibition, going from one experience to another. Just like in the case of a farewell, there is no way back, only a continuing path to another chapter.
