THE CRUCIFORM BENCH

DENIZEN WORKS en tant que Architectes.

The concept for the benches draws on the predominant visual motif found throughout the cemetery - the cross. This motif is composed into a three dimensional form to create two galvanized steel bases, between which spans a solid timber seat. The clean, delicate metalwork contrasts with the heft of timber and its expressive grain to create a sculptural form in the landscape. 

Five benches were commissioned for the central memorial zone in the cemetery, three of which were specially adapted to include backrests and are now located in the Garden of Remembrance War Memorial.

The design was chosen as the winner from over 50 international entries and is part of the wider project at the cemetery, which was shortlisted for the 2021 RIBA MacEwen Award.
