|:||Set on the edge of Watermead Lake and bordered by the River Thame, Aylesbury Vale Crematorium is shaped by water and nature. The semi-circular building sympathetically nestles into the sloping site and looks out towards the lake and surrounding countryside. Inside, the ceremony space is light and open, finished in natural materials such as stone and timber. The materiality is deliberately soft to reflect the calmness of the surrounding countryside. Curved north-east glazing and a rooflight above the catafalque flood the space with natural light. The orientation of the glazing allows for stunning views across the lake through a screen of trees, bridging the gap between the building and surrounding landscape.|
