An opportunity to reflect upon life, in a pleasant outdoor setting, is provided at Lismore Memorial Gardens in NSW.
By creating a casket bier out of hardwood and placing it within a garden setting as a central feature within a paved courtyard, the cemetery has developed a space especially for outdoor funerals.
When it is not in use the bier looks like a decorative garden feature. The tables and benches in the adjacent area provide an accessible user friendly facility for mourners and cemetery visitors alike.
The bier is simple, stylish and a garden feature when not in use.
