Kuhn Funeral Home Addition

With no room to add on to the current building, a local funeral home purchased the adjacent residential property for additional parking and service buildings. A primary concern was to ensure the streetscape was in keeping with the character of the beautiful commercial district that surrounds the funeral home — great attention paid to how the parking area would be screened from the street. A brick wall with a beautiful waterfall feature was incorporated into the design. Surrounding the waterfall are a decorative landscape area and a bench for the public to enjoy. The lot was secured with a decorative black gate. The team developed a solution to expand the mortuary services building in the rear of the property in keeping with the existing architecture. The building contains a preparations room, a family gathering room, a restroom, and a new two car garage for hearse storage. This project received a Certificate of Commendation from the Associated Builders and Contractors Keystone Chapter.
