Community park & Crematorium
Village of Ratanpur, located 10km from Gandhinagar, lost its crematorium to the GIFT Project. A new Crematorium with Community Park was decided to be constructed at the new site, made available in exchange of the old site.
The Park and the Crematorium are demarcated by high walls and proposed with thick plantation, providing a buffer space. It also helps segregate the two activities, which differ in their functional use and character. The plantation is of several local tree species, composed against the high walls and several seating areas have been designed under their shade.
Scope of Work: Landscape Architecture
Nature of Project: Institutional / Public
Site Area: 2 acres
Architects: Anthill Design
