The Paris-based design collective 'Plan 01' recently constructed a modern crematorium that provides a peaceful place for mourners. When it comes to funeral homes, it is difficult to create a space that feels warm and inviting. This contemporary building features a unique design that is both dignified and serene.

The non-denominational funeral space is located in the city of Amiens, which is located in Northern France. The crematorium sits in the middle of an expansive garden that helps to make the space more peaceful. The building itself features rounded walls that are made of a sandy-colored concrete. The interior features textured walls and perforated white ceilings, which provide a peaceful space for mourners to gather.

'Crematorium Amiens' demonstrates how architects can create a space that will put mourners at ease during a difficult time.
