This is the office building for the Gethsemane Catholic Cemetery, designed to provide the space for the visitors and administrators of the adjacent mausoleum and the grounds, and includes office spaces, a conference room, Reception Lobby & waiting area, Restrooms and other utility spaces. The exterior architecture provided the inspiration for the larger adjacent building that house the mausoleum. The compact and efficient design of this office building, and a more modest yet monumental exterior was at the heart of the concept for the design. With the office spaces and the conference room are all located on the exterior to benefit from the natural light and ventilations, while at the core the utility spaces were housed.
