Modern, serene and inviting

Here are two gorgeous cemeteries in Portugal: Luz and Estrela. Stunning, Mediterreanean, and  whitewashed. They’re both designed by the architects Pedro Pacheco and Marie Clement.

They’re small. They feel very traditional. And they’re transformative. They invite srtolling and viewing and contemplation.

Modern. Warm. Crisp. Inviting. A very important choice.
