CREMATORION

On the site of Zorgvlied cemetery in Amsterdam, architects’ office GROUP A designed an extraordinary crematorion. A building which offers to accompany the deceased to the last moment. A design which aims to meet the needs of various user groups with diverse cultural and religious backgrounds. It focuses on the actual burning of the body and the spiritual experience connected to this event. The upward direction and big skylight above strengthen the feeling of the rising departure.
Tentech supported the architects design process and was responsible for engineering the membrane. The shape stands out in the green surroundings of the cemetery. It also stands out from a structural point of view; the membrane’s shape could only be obtained by a set of subtle changes in tension of the fabric.

Textile architecture

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
