The Project consists of two components, which are clearly identified: the Cremation Unit set in front of the existent chapel’s atrium, and the Ashes Temple, lineal building, which crosses the site longitudinally.

The building’s floor plan responds to the particular conditions: The Chapel and atrium’s geometry, the site’s edge with its marked topography and row of trees, and to the existing mourning chambers.
