CAFUBE Funeral Home by LOKOMOTIV.archs
Alexander Zaxarov
May 5, 2020

The joint and certainty that guides the whirlwind of ideas that enveloped this project by LOKOMOTIV.archs was its functional coherence, which is accompanied by the complicit and creative light of a new balance.

In the search for the intrinsic beauty of the architectural object, connubial of pure and functional, the containing silence, the ephemeral that comes to life, the pain and calm that embrace this building in one, highlight the contrast with an architecture monumental whose massive character, heaviness, austerity, balance, and functional coherence are the masters.

The object rests on the ground, aspiring to the sky, in a combination of a heavy load-bearing internal skeleton wrapped externally by a candid origami of slabs with light and suspended appearance. This diaphanous and clean skin, chiseled in a linear and rhythmic way by triangulations and pure geometric shapes, comes to life and interrogates the observer through the light, which creeps into the slits and creates shadows that change over time.
