FCBS designs £1.5m woodland burial park
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has revealed the first images of this £1.5million woodland burial park outside Liverpool
The series of timber-clad buildings include reception facilities, a hall and a maintenance barn.
The hall has a glulam timber roof structure and is designed as ‘a place of calm reflection’.
The 71-acre park includes private woodland and meadows and provides a burial facility for those seeking an alternative to a traditional funeral.
The concept, which mirrors the ‘cycle of life’, incorporates the burial process within a long-term plan to restore and extend the native woodlands.
The first phase of the project which includes the maintenance barn and reception building is set to complete next month. The hall will be built as part of a future phase.
