Location: Prospect Cemetery, Toronto, ON
The Situation: In this urban Toronto setting, available space for burials was rapidly disappearing. A nearby park that Stephanie had previously redone set the example of the desired look and feel.
The Solution and Result: After a series of meetings with community groups, Snow Larc developed a concept and ultimately a detailed design for a new streetscape including a custom wall and fence, integrating and restoring the existing cemetery enclosure. A high traffic area is treated with a planting design to ensure that wear and tear is minimized. Throughout the new streetscape, CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) principles are incorporated such that sightlines are improved, entrapment areas eliminated, and the overall aesthetic of the cemetery frontage enhanced.
