Mater Dolorosa Catholic Cemetery (Wall of Remembrance)

Nature of Project: Public Project
Location: Kensington, JHB
Size of residence: NA

The client’s brief was to create a spiritual and peaceful space, a wall of remembrance on the grounds of the Catholic church in Kensington to house the ashes of those who have passed on. The wall was built under a row of fully grown pine trees creating a relationship to nature and creating much-needed shade for its visitors. The wall is divided into triangulated segments tapering to a point divided by open spaces creating references to religious sculptures creating spiritual metaphors.
