We climb a gentle path to get there.

We are absorbed by silence as we contemplate this endless and ethereal space.

© Fernando Guerra

Again, here function determines the space. Open and endless.

At the centre, the family gathers around the memory of their loved ones.

The space is formed by a ceiling that hangs from columns on which a low dome sits, asserting hierarchy and tradition.

© Fernando Guerra

Timeless, in the contemporary reading of a place of respect, memory and gratitude.

© Fernando Guerra

The massiveness of the exposed concrete and the stone create space and function and open these to the landscape and to infinity.

Silence tells stories and evokes Life as it advances through the finiteness of time and space.

Everything else is intimacy.

© Fernando Guerra
