White for a darker part of culture

3A Composites GmbH as Manufacturers

Funerals are an important part of every culture. Both operative as well as administrative spaces are located at the new headquarters of the funeral parlour B&F Wien – Bestattung und Friedhoefe GmbH. A core element of the new building is the client area comprising exhibition areas for tombstones, urns and coffins. The building is situated on a main access road, which has run alongside the central graveyard since the graveyard was extended in the 1920s. Mindful of the existing visual axes –Entrance number 2, and the crematorium in the north-west, the new building makes reference to the archaic buildings in its environment. A green and weather-protected courtyard constitutes the transitional space between inside and outside. Ceiling length glass panels and the white ALUCOBOND® façade form an optical connection to the green exterior and generate an uninterrupted, atmospheric landscape. The external landscaping opts for plants and structures pertaining to classical graveyard design and complements isolated stand-alone structures with discreet timeless green space.
