In association with Gillard Builders, Milne Australia constructed the Garden Court pavilion. Facing the center courtyard, the breezeway provides a direct line of sight to the massive eucalyptus tree at the center of the courtyard. The hexagonal pavilion's roof structure is supported by massive concrete columns. The exposed timber decking provides a rough hewn contrast to the polished granite crypt fronts. A Spanish tile roof adds to the old world ambience. Mirroring the pavilion is the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, which provides visual continuity with Spanish roof tiles, while concealing an elegant interior of marble crypt fronts, and high recessed domed ceilings.
