Luca Curci – What do you think about the concept of this festival? In which way did it inspire you?

pS Arkitektur – A festival with a great depth and height. Art and architecture in combination is always exciting.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

pS A. – As architects, we always try to surprise our clients with something new. We are currently working on housing projects from the coast to the mountains. And our interior design projects make small start-up-companies grow faster.

L.C. – How would you describe your style?  

pS A. – Our commercial interiors are always a result of the clients’ brand and culture.  Our housing projects are derived from a sense of place and history, made with traditional building materials.

L.C. – Are you concerned about environmental and social sustainability in your buildings? If so, what role does green building play into your work?  

pS A. – Designing houses in such a tough climate as Scandinavia, we always take the environment and sustainability into account. For example: Our Ski cabins must withstand 6 months with almost no sun and an average temperature of minus 10 degrees C. A major housing project in south of Sweden consists of 500 apartments. These houses will stand for another 100 years. The importance of building sustainably cannot be exaggerated.

L.C. – Did you feel comfortable cooperating with us?
