All Souls Mausoleum - Update

01 July 2022

About

All Souls mausoleum, Springvale Botanical Cemetery's latest precinct release

Nestled on the expansive lawns of Springvale Botanical Cemetery’s south-eastern corner, All Souls promises to deliver a contemporary interpretation of a mausoleum.

This serene, light-filled space will blend its distinctly modern sensibilities with traditional cultural references – from ornate terrazzo tiling to a peaceful courtyard garden inspired by the Garden of Gethsemane.

Construction for the mausoleum is now underway, in partnership with 2Construct Pty Ltd, using a curated selection of premium materials. An expansive piece of Harcourt granite will represent the Agony Rock in the mausoleum’s garden, while marble and bluestone will adorn the floor in ornate mosaic patterns.

The building of the roof lantern steel frame is underway. This beautiful design for the skylight is based on the concept of a campanile (bell tower) which provides a connection of sense and importance to the floor below and allows for a subtle lighting effect of filtered light to be introduced into the space.

This gorgeous courtyard feature, known as the amphora is almost complete. In ancient Rome, olive oil was often stored in a terracotta urn called an amphora, and this is sculpture is designed to highlight the significance of oil in Christian culture.
