Saint Simeon Cemetery was a new start-up cemetery for the Archdiocese of Denver. The project was master planned on a total of 35 acres with the first phase using approximately 7 acres. The project featured four initial burial gardens, outdoor pavilion plaza, cemetery offices (which could be expanded to a funeral home) and columbarium niche walls in the initial phase. This project was designed to provide approximately 7,000 burial and cremation spaces in the first phase and an ultimate capacity of over 30,000 ground burial spaces and over 2,000 mausoleum crypts. The project’s main feature is a large crucifix on a common pavilion plaza with surrounding spaces for the garden mausoleum buildings.
JST Architects not only developed the cemetery plan, but also provided full architectural services for implementation of the project.
