A new building, the Small Chapel provides an intimate and private environment for services. It is located to provide immediate access to the crematorium plant, with visual connection from the interior to the green surrounds through carefully placed picture windows.
The serpentine form of the Function Centre evokes the existing curvilinear themes typical of the park, whilst responding to the natural topography of the site. The five function spaces have been developed so that they can provide flexibility of use and combination. Soaring skillion roofs bring in controlled day light and focus the space onto a proposed reflection pool as well as the parkland and national park beyond.
The proposed relocation of the function spaces to a new building provides an opportunity to rationalise and reconfigure the existing Administration Building. The plan has been developed to provide a clear and appropriate point of entry to the reception space. The staff environment is planned to maximise the daylight penetration into the space with the open plan areas to the external facades and offices generally against the core.
