Extension of the Cemetery of Sabadell
This project is commissioned by Sabadell City Hall in order to reflect on the cemetery and its interaction with the environment, the historic area and its future growth.
The project suggests planting a dense forest that prevents the cemetery from being seen and that shades the car park.
The extension entails adding of small personalized areas around cloister-courtyards of different dimensions. Each of these cloisters will have different colours and vegetation, and some of them could even centre on a lake. The result would offer a much more pleasant environment than most overcrowded cemeteries in big cities.
