A sequence of buildings designed to be spiritually uplifting and have minimal impact on the environment providing a unique range of bereavement and ceremonial facilities.
Located at Emma Wood in Rainford, Merseyside, every detail of this new Woodland Burial Park has been designed to harmonise with its woodland setting. The buildings are made from, and clad in, wood, their relationship to the surrounding trees emphasised with views out through large picture windows. The quality of dappled light that is characteristic of the site was inspiration for the quality of light brought into the building, where windows are fitted with ‘veils’ of vertical timber ribs that filter the light, as if through tree branches. Even the way in which spaces are heated in winter - with a log boiler fuelled by timber coppiced from the woods – enhances the connection between building and woodland.
