The Cascade Mausoleum represents some of the most meaningful work our firm has produced. Basing the design on the client's strong faith, we created a 3x3 grid in the plan. From north to south is the holy trinity and from east to west are the three components of man: mind, body, and spirit. Where these lines intersect, representative experience awaits the occupant. To ascend the mausoleum is to take a metaphorical journey from life (outside) to death (crypt level) and finally one ascends to the afterlife (the top level) where you are gifted the expansive and glorious views otherwise hidden.
