Hinckley & Bosworth Crematorium
Hinckley and Bosworth Crematorium was granted planning approval in early part of 2019. The site is a low-lying plot next to the A47 north west of Hinckley. The design aims to stretch the building along the far boundary of the site to give a long and low form to the scheme, settled in against the tree line at the rear of the site.
The front facing façade of the building is heavily colonnaded to abstractly connect with the vertical lines of the trees whilst the materials are striking in their colour contrasting, long-lasting light stone finish.
The building provides a large multi-faith ceremonial space for up to 200 guests and covered external waiting, memorial and flower court spaces. The three buildings and spaces of the development are linked with a long pedestrian colonnade which adds layers of transparency to the design.
