  • Improve the existing cemetery facilities with a new funeral home that will complement the current offered services, using construction systems and technical solutions that will promote sustainability and energy efficiency.
  • Dignify the entrance of the existing cemetery, which is quite degraded, organizing arranging and equipping it with differentiated pedestrian and parking areas.
  • Integrate landscaping in the proposal respecting the park character. The place should have, given its urban location, preserving and reforesting the existing green slopes around the intervention area and incorporating part of the building volume to the existing topography
