Outline

Set amid the backdrop of Musashino's abundant natural richness, Tokorozawa Sacred Cemetery is park cemetery with a 40-year history. The administration office that serves the combined functions of office, break room, and chapel was decided to be rebuilt in the same place due to the building's age. This new building was designed to be in harmony with the landscape of the park cemetery. Moreover, the central part of the building was made to have a “crevasse-like” inner courtyard and “grotto-like” pilotis, and this quiet and symbolic sequence enables visitors to restfully recollect the deceased.
