In the architectural competition, the brick building was called “A Stone in the Forest” and it is well suited to the forest landscape. The facility opened in May 2014 and was awarded Sweden’s most prestigious architectural prize: the Kasper Salin Prize.
The chapels in Gunnar Asplund’s old crematory building will be used for funeral ceremonies, just as before.
For a tour of the facility, contact Stockholms kyrkogårdsförvaltning (Stockholm Cemetery Management). The Stockholm City Museum does not have access to the facility.
