PRIVATE SECTOR: Harbour View Crematorium

Lytchett Minster, Dorset


Full mechanical design and fit-out





The Brief

DEWCO were appointed to provide full mechanical design and fit out for this new crematorium building in Dorset. This new £4m project aimed to ease existing funeral waiting times and allow bereaved families more choice and flexibility.

Our Response

Set within the extensive grounds of the Woodland Burial Centre overlooking the open countryside beyond, this almost subterranean building was designed by local architects to encapsulate a spiritual identity appearing as the natural landscape complete with a tranquil shallow moat opening onto a reflective pool. Careful consideration was taken throughout all the design and fit-out stages of this project to ensure a light, airy and non invasive feel to all public areas.
