Krekke Rest Stop Area / Pushak + Lala Tøyen

Krekke is a place to stop for a rest along the main road through Gudbrandsdalen, but it?s also a park area for the local community of Fåvang, Ringebu. The service functions are placed inside an embankment that works as a noise barrier between the park and the highway. Daylight is admitted down to a protected sitting area inside the embankment through a prism-shaped skylight, which protrudes from the top of the barrier as a signal to passers-by.
