The local councils of greater Nantes (Nantes Métropole) and Sorinières
Status: Execution after competition | Area: 4,38 ha | Cost: 1st phase 733,000 € plus additional taxes
The new cemetery of Sorinières is set in a rural context straddling a thalweg. As the subsoil does not permit the construction of underground vaults, the project consists of square platforms installed above ground to provide the thickness necessary for the installation of vaults.
The programme consists of 360 vaults, a columbarium and commemorative steles to carry the names of the deceased whose ashes are scattered in the garden of remembrance, a place for burying funeral urns and another for natural earth burials.
A small technical building is made of hollow brick with canal tile facing set in an oak framework. The roof of this building, ventilated naturally thanks to the layout of tiles, is cloaked in vegetation.
A building for ceremonies symbolically links the two banks of the thalweg.
A first phase of 4 square platforms out of 21 has been completed.
