"Last Landscape is a cemetery but also a park - we designed the landscape of the park and a variety of small buildings, which are a pole of attraction for those who use this place aside from the cemetery functions.

The cemetery adopts nature and plants as universal symbols of rebirth and remembrance, in which everyone can feel at ease, beyond religions and cults. The cemetery park presents itself in the most natural way possible - there are no tombstones, columbarium, cut flowers or candles... nature, trees, and plants are the leading elements of the park."
