De Nieuwe Ooster cemetery and crematorium in Amsterdam is by far the largest cemetery in the Netherlands. Measuring 33 Ha and containing over 28,000 graves, it was built in three phases, in 1889, 1915 and 1928. In the 117 years of its existence, it has undergone many changes. Since 2003 it has been a national monument. In 2001 a process of renovation and transformation process was started, which, at the end of 2003, included a shortlisted competition for the design of the cineraria (section 73 and section 75). This was won by Karres and Brands landscape architects. Construction started in 2005. Later, Karres & Brands also made a design for section 65 and a master plan for the whole cemetery. The latter provides a structured spatial and functional framework capable of meeting the requirements of the coming 50 years.
