Úrkút is a small village in Hungary, situated in Bakony Hills, one of the most beautiful places in the country. The cemetery of Úrkút takes place on a hill-side facing southeast and the new feretory is at the highest point of this cemetery. There are two beautiful and high pine trees near to the fence of the cemetery and they make one architectural composition together with the building.
On the way to the feretory there is the gate of the cemetery and also square which are both decorated with crushed stone. The building is opened to the southeast direction with opened and from the top covered space. The design of the feretory reflects on the building’s environment.
The building was made of white plaster facades.
The influx of sunlight, the revealing mass of building and the white walls are the mediators of hope of revival.
