Crematorium Siesegem, Aalst

KAAN Architecten 

The building is conceived as an oasis of calm that manifests itself exteriorly through few but sculptural openings striking a contrast with the lines of the surrounding landscape.

Affixed to the terrain, the crematorium is an ode to order and peace, characterized by high spaces, reinforced concrete, and solemn natural lighting that reinforces the symbolic nature of the program.

The floor plan of rigorous rectangles presents interior spaces that differ in atmosphere, depending on use, and distinguish themselves also via patios of varying size that facilitate orientation while letting light in.
