office De Nieuwe Ooster Amsterdam

An elongated office and funeral centre is situated on the edge of De Nieuwe Ooster cemetery. A simple desk provides a fitting reception for the bereaved. The repetitive structure of the wooden rafters and windows make the office areas open and transparent. The working areas can be flexibly arranged. The changing rooms and a canteen are in the basement. The interior is expressly warm and sober in appearance.
