Textual content description equipped through the architects. The Sablonceaux cemetery extension mission represented for us the primary alternative to intrude on a safe web page. A solution to reaffirm our perspective on an positioned structure, in a position to jostle and marvel whilst respectfully insert in its context. An structure this is each touching and expressive.
The mission is positioned on the foot of the Abbey, within the extension of the previous cemetery. On a sloping flooring against a river, in a detailed courting with the territory, it seeks to combine delicately with out editing the topography. Thus, the brand new cemetery can also be learn like a line within the panorama, a brand new stratum.
The built components come to underline the Abbey. Using “web page concrete” constitutes the hyperlink between our intervention and the present one. We need to determine a continuity within the fabrics, in line with their expressive reality.
Opt for the limestone the place the stones of the Abbey might be extracted. Use it otherwise, in a modern approach. Draw within the reminiscence of where. Those partitions mark the brand new front and invite you to consider from a special approach the monument. A route is outlined round it, accentuated through the declivity of the sphere. Inside of, the columbarium rises in entrance people, hiding and revealing the present wall, in a recreation of depths and rhythms that highlights the existing stone, the passing time.
An increased platform, like a promontory at the panorama, establishes the transition between the previous cemetery and its extension. Inside of it that the Jardin des Souvenirs takes position. It turns into a spot of singular meditation, held through the expressive pressure of the concrete sails. A privileged position to consider the panorama working away, search a horizon within the Charente simple, a place to take into accounts the trails traveled.
