funeral centre De Nieuwe Ooster Amsterdam
An elongated office and funeral complex is situated in the facility zone of De Nieuwe Ooster cemetery. The funeral centre is orientated towards the cemetery. Four bereavement rooms, two foyers and supporting facilities are interwoven in an ingenious way. Wooden slats in front of the glass façades filter the daylight and provide privacy. Sliding walls can soundproof and partition off the bereavement rooms from the entrance area. In order to enhance the sound insulation, the sliding walls have custom-designed, profiled surfaces. The furniture was designed by Claudia Stalpers.
