From the architect. The order was made to build a small morgue in pizarra, a mountain village located in the province of Málaga. The project propose a place for the gathering, the resting and reflection of friends and family members left behind by deceased loved ones. We wanted the project to be build with a style that is simple and discreet, playing with the light and the characteristics of the area.

The project houses three mourning rooms, one small multi-purpose room, the area of preparation of the body and an area for common services for the public. All this was designed in a single story, with an area of about 320 sqm. The building is intended to be inserted in the municipality on a discreet street, appearing to have always been there.
