cluster. / columbarium niche


cluster. is a storage system, used in a columbarium, that optimizes space usage by making use of customizable modular urns. Families can opt to put their remains close to each other to form a cluster and by using the same coloured urn, locating the niches of families would become easier.

A locking mechanism is used to facilitate the placing and removal of the urns and this caters to the possibility of relocation of the cremated remains.

cluster. is a potential solution for countries like Singapore & Hong Kong, that are currently facing land scarcity issue.
