Evans Vettori for RW Percival Funeral Directors
Contract value: undisclosed 
GIA: 217m2

This is a two-storey building for an expanding funeral director, with a garage to store part of its vehicle fleet. The site sits just outside the ‘Higher Buxton’ character area close to several churches. The brief was to provide a building which allows the business to sensitively cater for bereaved families and to provide an efficient and functional plan for the staff to perform all aspects of funeral organisation, administration and preparation. Primary spaces include public reception, office, and chapel of rest, with private preparation and cold room at ground and ancillary offices at first floor. The building is designed to make external approaches and internal circulation as simple as possible.
