The Center at Maple Grove Cemetery

The Center at Maple Grove

Design Architect / Architect of Record: Peter Gisolfi Associates with Project Manager Christopher Spencer. Located at Maple Grove Cemetery. the building program consisted of an inspirational and spiritual healing space, a family room, a large exhibition hall, a community room and administrative offices. The concept of the design is an administrative wing that responds to the scale and material texture of the community. This administration wing is juxtaposed against a barrel-vaulted “folly” in the landscape, realized as the “celebration hall” or a wellness and spiritual center. Building functions include post internment events for family members, lectures of spiritual world healers, tai chi seminars, concerts and other events for the community at large.
