Elaboration by Mark Chalmers describes Mortonhall thus; "The calm Modernism is a fitting backdrop for loss and grief in our Age – compared to say the High Gothic which was the Victorians’ funerary style. One is the product of a rational humanism, or a gentle pantheism; the other reflects the psychopomp of the later 19th century, with its elaborate ceremony and ritual."
I would agree with this decription; "...white Corbusian buildings in rolling parkland setting: the crystalline chapel's interior feels Scandinavian." -via e-architect
All interior fixtures and fittings were kept simple to allow for quiet reflection. The interior of the chapel is lit naturally with the only colour coming from stained glass windows, which project coloured patterns onto the white interior." -via National Gallery Scotland.
"Spence insisted that all the interior fixtures and fittings were kept simple. Pine pews set into concrete blocks allow for quiet reflection; a white concrete and bronze platform supports the coffin; and dark grey concrete slabs comprise the flooring. The only colour within the chapels comes from the stained glass windows..." via the Sir Basil Spence Archive Project.
