Jews Gate Cemetery
Jews' Gate Cemetery is a historically significant location in Gibraltar, dating back to the 18th century. In 2012, we were commissioned as architects to lead a restoration project initiated to conserve and preserve the cemetery, which had fallen into disrepair. The project involved repairing and stabilizing the headstones, as well as creating a new entrance and raised walkways to improve accessibility while respecting any graves. The restoration has not only helped to preserve this important piece of Gibraltar's history but has also created a tranquil space for visitors to reflect and pay their respects to those buried there.
The following is an extract from the BuildGibraltar Magazine in 2017:
An award-winning installation [Group Heritage Award - Oct 2015] featuring a series of raised walkways and pathways, sensitively integrated in a historic Grade A Listed Cemetery, located on a challenging site, allowing safe access and a sensory nature experience to visitors, including resting points, scenic vantage points and places for meditation.
