The road stops Lillefjord and Snefjord are included in the travelling exhibition “Detour”, and are published in various international magazines of architecture and landscape architecture. Currently PUSHAK have public commissions for a kindergarten in Stavern and a planning assignment for an urban area in Sandefjord, as well as the crematorium with sitework starting august 2009.
PUSHAK is working consciously with established virtues of architecture like solving the functional demands of a programme, finding a good location on a site and forming buildings in a way that creates spaces that are pleasant to be in. We try to offer both open and more intimate spaces. Each site’s surroundings, movements, materials, colours, climate, light, and vistas are our main sources of inspiration.
