Mandai North Crematorium, Singapore
Mandai North Crematorium is a standalone facility that will add to the cremation capacity of the existing Mandai Crematorium. Designed to provide high quality cremation services in a tranquil and dignified setting, the building is conceived as a green sanctuary that offers a healing environment for the bereaved.
Despite its limited site area and proximity to the main road, the idea of a green sanctuary has been preserved in the design of the crematorium building and its surroundings through a range of urban greening strategies that includes hanging gardens, sunken gardens, layered greenery and dappled light. The aim is to create a sense of being surrounded by peaceful lush greenery at key spaces in the proceedings, from the moment of arrival at the building to the ceremonial service and the final farewell.
