Arbor Memorial has redeveloped many of their existing funeral homes across Canada to attract more people and not exclude people from different cultural and religious backgrounds. The design focuses on giving an inviting country club atmosphere and warm embracing ambience for both the patrons of the facility and the staff. The expansion/ renovations typically upgrade the existing facilities both outside and inside to create a fresh new appearance to the entire building. Exterior materials are very resilient and include a natural local stone where possible to relate to the location and provide warmth to the building. Gables and dormers accentuate the main visitor drop-off areas and provide a feeling of shelter.
