In coordination with Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of Joliet and Cold Spring Granite Company, Mekus Tanager assisted S.S. Peter & Paul Cemetery in Naperville, Illinois with the design of the Mausoleum of the Holy Apostles, a new garden crypt and niche complex with an outdoor committal shelter.
Mekus Tanager, Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of Phase 1 of a new committal shelter and garden crypt complex in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, located in Alsip, Illinois. Designed to stylistically compliment an existing garden crypt complex across the lawn, the new Mausoleum of the Archangels Extension is split into two levels; an upper level featuring private areas solely for niches, and a lower level featuring crypts, an outdoor committal shelter, and sculpture garden. The crypts were designed to be only 5 or 6 units high, instead of the standard 7, to provide a more human scale to the crypt buildings.
Mekus Tanager was part of a design team that developed the 323-acre master plan for Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, and the development provides approximately 253,000 new burial spaces.
