Garden of Divine Word
Client: Saint Arnold Development Corp.
The Garden of Divine Word is a columbarium development located within the SVD Seminary in Quezon City. It is set within a centuries old garden and cemetery sheltered by majestic narra and rain trees. The chapel, offices, and niches are housed in a three-storey structure along the perimeter of the site, with corridors that open onto the central garden. A statue of the Virgin Mary on an elevated grotto overlooks the site, and is reached through a series of steps within the terraced garden. The sound of a spring-fed cascading waterfall further enhances the experience, eventually emptying into the lagoon that surrounds the outdoor chapel.
