Architect Adrian Pooley won an award for his contemporary design of the majestic Mt. Thompson Memorial Gardens’ East Chapel. Avant-garde architect Dr Karl Langer – who was cremated at Mt. Thompson Memorial Gardens after his death in 1969 – conceived the attached enclave and courtyard.
The recent refurbishment not only reinvigorated Pooley’s vision, but the sleek, modern appearance of the East Chapel contrasts distinctly with the art deco West Chapel.
Airy and bright with modern lighting and a tranquil colour scheme, the chapel features a marble and timber podium and contemporary seating.
The recent refurbishments of our East and West Chapels were carefully designed to be in keeping with their history and their architects’ original designs.
The chapel is now fully wheelchair accessible, and includes amenities for people with disabilities and we have also installed the latest audio-visual technology.
Each chapel has a large plasma screen and hi-fi sound system to cater for people who want to incorporate slideshows or music into their funeral services. This helps you to create a more personalised and interactive memorial for your loved one.
