From the architect. The coffin is first carried from the hearse to a quiet and peaceful room for last goodbyes. From this quiet room, friends and relatives of the deceased have the option to follow the coffin and observe the cremation through a window into the furnace room. The 12-meter-tall furnace room is flooded with daylight; brick walls and granite floors are lit throughout the day by windows placed high on the East and West gables, which face the woods.
The crematorium is designed with consideration for the people who work there. The new furnace room creates good indoor climate and working conditions while also offering a worthy atmosphere for the relatives of the deceased. Users of the space are able to enjoy the light as it changes
