Cultural
  • The community of Fort Chipewyan has a need for a new cemetery.
  • The environment needed to meet spatial, traditional, and natural requirements, to provide diversity and allow for an appreciation of the experience.
  • Through engagement with the chief and Council, a site was selected.
  • An open house was held with the community to identify key aspects that they wanted from the design.
  • 818 is currently working on conceptual designs that honour the cultural landscape and meet these community needs.
  • Connection to nature is a key feature of the design, with trees surrounding the cemetery, walkways, shelters, and seats, and integration of nature walks and scattered gardens.

818 studio is a different landscape architecture studio.

We create stunning environments through close collaboration.
