Interior Design

Resoma has been designed as  a more environmentally responsible option for afterlife care. The initial idea came out of startling statistics about the annual use of natural resources specifically in afterlife care. 

Alkeline hydrolosis is the process of using water and alkaline to gently speed up the decomposition of the human body, resulting in a nutrient rich liquid that can be used as a fertiliser. Using this technology as a foundation to my project, I have designed a memorial botanical garden which is fuelled by the nutrients that a human body can provide. This project will not only aim to use an environmentally friendly method of afterlife care from start to finish, but will also be sustainable in the sense that it will never run out of space, as there will be no physical memorial for people who have passed through the process.
