The project provides 160,000 indoor niches, a 2-way 2-lane access road connecting the building to Nim Wan Road, a rooftop garden, outdoor joss paper burners, administrative facilities and a Gardens of Remembrance for scattering of cremated ashes with memorial walls holding about 20,000 nos. of name plaques.
Located at a rural and coastal setting, the project is designed to avoid sense of intimidation and anxiety, by embracing with the natural environment and dense landscaping.  The key design objectives are to create a calm, comfortable, open-viewed and peaceful space, where respect and remembrance are paid towards the deceased.  Many efforts are paid to strike a balance between keeping a dignified image and creating a humane atmosphere so that this building of a dualistic nature can serve its purpose as the meeting place of life and death.
The niches floors adopt balcony approach and high headroom to allow cross ventilation and bring natural light into the interior.  The atriums help encourage the stack effect of ventilation and bring direct sunlight to the G/F.  The site design aims to maximize view to the open sea by proper orientation of the building blocks.
