55-acre Master Plan
WSKF Architects was selected to lead a design team of architects and engineers to update the 55-acre Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Higginsville, Mo. The project scope included the addition of a 720-niche columbarium wall, walkway, storage space, seating, landscaping, lake dredging and stabilization of the lake's bank. WSKF also updated the cemetery master plan. The new columbarium wall was fashioned from limestone and granite. WSKF's design approach blends functionality with the solemn and sensitive nature of the project.
