Crematorium, Aalst, Belgium

Crematorium Siesegem, one of the largest crematoria in Europe, is located on the western ring road around the city of Aalst. The design transforms the bustle of the outside world into a discreet and quiet atmosphere. This impressive architectural jem of more than 6,000 m² was built by Jan De Nul Group.

On the outside, the building maybe looks like a concrete bunker but inside, it exudes simplicity and peace through an oasis of light. The building is 80 by 80 metres, an enormous square. Both in size and finishing, Jan De Nul Group delivered a masterpiece. Crematorium Siesegem has two ceremonial halls and three cremation ovens. Each year, this offers capacity for 3,000 cremations.
