This was a commercial project for the country's largest funeral furnishers consisting of a new operations centre for East and North London. The development includes office accommodation, stores, vehicle maintenance and mortuary facilities.

The centrepiece of the 1.6 million project is an ecumenical chapel, octagonal in form and built as a brick drum with a lead clad roof, oak lined internally.

The chapel was an interesting design challenge influenced both by commercial considerations and by the demands of various religious groups within a racially mixed community.

The drawing above is part of a sequence produced to illustrate the roof geometry to the client. These three dimensional studies were later developed to full working drawings for construction.
