A visually-striking new funeral home in coastal Spain demonstrates that death, and funerals, and funeral homes, don’t necessarily have to be dreadfully depressing.

Take a look at these pictures from the Funeral Home and Garden in Pinoso, created by COR architects.

Architectonic and interior design statements brought on by a funeral parlor may seem like a strange concept.  Who takes a breather to appreciate the architecture of the place after losing a loved one?

The architects said “We understand this building as a place that will resist being forgotten, remaining in the retinas of their users, and therefore a place where the sensitive realm has to be controlled. Parameters such as sound, temperature, light, humidity, lighting, privacy, relationship with nature become very important.”
