Exit Here
by Transit Studio

Agnese Sanvito

Transit Studio has created a design-focused funeral parlour in west London, which aims to make visitors more comfortable with the concept of death.

The studio was tasked with creating the future of the funeral parlour, transforming Victorian attitudes to death into a celebration of life.

Exit Here transforms the experience of planning a funeral by immersing clients in a setting that rejects the typically dark and gloomy aesthetic of parlours.

The studio wanted to create an open and welcoming environment that helped to break down the barriers that exist in current funeral parlours. The practice created a sense of calm with the softness of a domestic environment, to help people feel more comfortable at a difficult time.


This project has been longlisted in the small retail interior category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
