COMPETITION ENTRY FOR CEMETERY IN JÄRVA COMMON, STOCKHOLM

KAP_galvenaa.jpg

Cemeteries have long been living in peoples minds with the symbolic importance and an ongoing commitment and hope for immortality.

The new Järva cemetery will become a place where the identity of the site is already defined by environmental quality and biodiversity (the open landscape with meadows, clusters of trees) and the historical importance of the area (archaeological monuments), as well as a strong feeling of recreation site.

The project proposal intends to create a place where the feeling of space is concentrated on the memory about deceased. The cemetery will become a park of reflection, a meditation place, with a statement that the end of life is only the beginning of another road.

BURIAL SCHEME

The project proposes several types and possibilities for burial. The regular division of flat burial graves (lawn graves) provides the opportunity for simple management, navigation and maintenance. This solution is appropriate, bearing in mind the diversity of beliefs in Sweden, further clarifying the possible design of grave location and orientation. Parts of graves are planned on Granholmstoppen hill. Burial wall/ niches around the whole area also serve as a boundary to isolate the area from the highway noise. There are several areas planned for vertical, free-standing burial niches, and ash discharge sites with places for meditation.
