Harriet Centre

Client: York Cemetery
Builder: JMark Construction
Architect: PPIY 

York Cemetery provides for the community, conservation, education, and recreation and depends on volunteers to maintain it.

The Harriet Centre is a new building for use by volunteers, staff, and the community, providing new volunteers’ facilities and a groundskeeper’s workshop.

The classical Gatehouse with pitched roof and pediments was a touchstone for the new building, which echoes and draws on this classical language in its design.

The feature geometric roof to the Harriet Room is light and supported aloft on steel piloti (small pillars) that allow full glazing on two sides. The feature roof uses birch faced plywood and is a statement.
