Lakewood Garden Mausoleum Video
This short film highlights the architectural details of Lakewood Garden Mausoleum in Minneapolis.
Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum
Built into the hillside to preserve the cemetery's pastoral quality, this elegantly simple design quietly embraces the landscape while offering a contemplative interior experience. The 24,000-square-foot, two-level mausoleum includes six crypt rooms, six columbaria rooms, three family crypt rooms, committal room, and support spaces. Clad in rough-textured gray granite and white mosaic-marble, the mausoleum unfolds horizontally on its site within three smaller pods that recall the many family mausoleums throughout the historic cemetery. Inside, light filters through skylights and lantern-windows to strengthen the relationship between the spiritual and the earth-bound.
"[The] impeccably detailed glass-and-granite structure fuses with the landscape in a respectful, yet unconventional, take on the most permanent of all building types."--Architect magazine
