The aim of this project is to reshape and bring out the currently vaguely defined borders between the cemetery and the surrounding through a series of various interventions.
To the west and east side two urn walls with 2.4 meters height mark the spatial conclusion to the street and to the neighboring social center.
To the south, the cemetery gets a one meter high wall, which gently delimits the newly designed parking area at Berkmannweg. At the same time it still allows a strong viewing connection from this side.
Two fountains with adjoining benches are integrated at the both sides of the central entrance, allowing a contemplative view of the cemetery and the church in optimal daylight. Beyond that precise openings are left open on all sides.
To the northeast the new laying-out hall forms a strong structural accent, which allows the continuation and completion of the ceremonial way at a funeral, which is a local characteristic. The covered entrance area opens to the south and enables a view at the cemetery.
The laying-out hall clearly divides the surrounding of the church into two main areas without blocking them from each other. Due to this all functional areas get sensitive atmospheric differentiations without losing the connection to the entire ensemble.
