Geelong Mausoleum

Geelong Eastern Cemetery

geelong mausoleum stage 3

This mausoleum at Geelong Eastern Cemetery is the third of a three stage development for the Italian community of Geelong.

The mausoleum provides 105 casket spaces, and like its siblings a little further up the hill, the Stage 1 and 2 mausolea, the crypts are arranged in three blocks to form a simple triangular internal space.

The concept for each of the mausoleums is to create a refuge in the often windy open cemetery landscape that overlooks Corio Bay. The interiors are conceived as a rich array of materials, colours and details to create a comforting and restful space.
