Tom Munz Architekt is an architectural practice based in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Presented below is a project named Cemetery Oberriet, located within the chapel complex in Oberriet, a Swiss municipality in the canton of St. Gallen.
The team of Tom Munz Architekt took a challenge to built a completely new building, that will serve as a space for the requirements of interfaith use.
“The power and significance of the number 3 constitutes the basis of the conceptual approach. The vertical and horizontal design of the new building, consisting of three elements, is also rigorously applied in its materialization,” explained the team of Tom Munz Architekt. Emptiness and clarity predominate in the whole structure. The base and roof were designed with a smooth framework surface. The external materiality — natural granulated concrete façades, smoothly blend with the interior, that is also held warm tones. The public viewing rooms create dense and intimate atmosphere.
