Cemetery design for the future

GMCT landscape architect Hamish Coates is drawing on his passion for art and sustainability as he designs memorial parks for Melbourne’s fast-growing urban sprawl, including GMCT’s future 130-hectare cemetery at Harkness in the city’s west – set to be Victoria’s biggest new cemetery in more than 100 years.

 

enewsimage1GMCT’s planning and design team is working to meet the needs of our communities for generations to come, imagining new memorial spaces to last in perpetuity – forever. 

Hamish Coates (pictured) works as a landscape architect in GMCT’s planning and design team, envisioning the cemeteries of the future. 

Hamish studied landscape architecture at RMIT University and worked in the field for some years. Plans and protractors eventually gave way to the sketchbook and paintbrush, as he undertook studies in fine art.

Since his move back into the landscape architecture field, Hamish has worked on fascinating projects: streetscapes, water-sensitive design, ‘pocket’ parks in urban areas and other projects to revive community open space.

Now he is drawing on his passion for art and sustainability at GMCT as he designs memorial parks for Melbourne’s fast-growing urban sprawl, including GMCT’s future 130-hectare cemetery at Harkness in the city’s west – set to be Victoria’s biggest new cemetery in more than 100 years.
