Roskilde Crematorium Chapel

Henning Larsen as Architects

Roskilde Crematorium Chapel is centred around a front square with access to the chapel. The courtyard area offers an intimate atmosphere – not least due to the great variety of plants. The chapel hall is connected to the courtyard by means of the large windows. The building is oriented towards the southeast and has an asymmetric shape. The hall constitutes a whole in itself. The choir and organist are placed on the balcony opposite the windows. The catafalque is illuminated by means of overhead light.
