Hancock Architecture was involved in the renovation of J&J Spratt Funeral Home’s carriage house. The carriage house won the commercial category of the 2017-18 Renovation Inspiration Contest. Check out the article here!

“Hancock Architecture of Rochester made sure the 20- by- 16-foot space meets all commercial codes and complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The finished space was divided to create a conference room and casket/urn display room, where the ends of polished coffins jut from the walls. Only about 40 percent of their clients are buried in caskets, Mike Spratt says. The rest are cremated, which is why there are so many urns to choose from.”
