OFL ARCHITECTURE UNVEIL THE NEW DESIGN FOR A COLOMBARIUM IN CAMPOFRANCO
Planning a funeral building means designing an item which has a strong symbolic value. It means dealing not only with a specific area where it will be built, but especially with the spiritual values which belong to a community.
The design effort aimed to create an architecture that identifies a place and is at the same time being able to interpret a psychological situation almost suspended between life and death.
They may be exchanged niche by niche according to the family’s needs and in order to respect the external visual recognition enabling the façade to change its composition.
The panel also features a LED strip that follows the drawing, replacing the usual perpetual light.
This strategy will allow a clean image of the facades and will pay attention to those niches difficult to reach because of the height or the lack of loved ones to take care of their deceased.
Materials: Walls made in white concrete then smoothed by Weber Saint-Gobain smoothing shave and then treated with a white and opaque resin concrete. The niches are buffered with special panels in lightened CLS. The epigraph plaque is made in white aluminum size 12cm x 75cm.
