York Geothermal Mausoleum

Location: York Cemetery, Toronto, ON

The Situation: It’s no secret that the amount of space available for burials in the City of Toronto and surrounding urban areas is diminishing. There is also a growing demand for burial space that is both attractive and at the same time adheres to green and sustainable practices. Smaller-scale mausoleums like this one, with dedicated geothermal heating/cooling are now offering a low impact solution with a reduced energy and space footprint.

The Solution and Result: Snow Larc collaborated with Carrier Mausoleum Construction Inc to develop a low impact landscape design including an infiltration gallery (rain garden) for stormwater management and native plants that make sense for the space.
