Leon City Funeral Chapel by BAAS architects, Spain


The following Funeral Chapel is located in Leon, Spain, in front of a large green area  and close to a residential neighborhood. To integrate the building into the natural environment, BAAS Arquitectes decided to bury it under a pond of water.

The waiting room opens to a large slope of ivy and birch, and is characterized with varnished wood, carpets and large indirect lighting to enhance their comfortable appearance. The rooms are naturally illuminated through some courtyards with water that gives privacy to the family. The building is constructed entirely of concrete, the only fitting material for a tombs. The choice of colour reminds us of the Boñar stone of which the whole city is built.06
