Astonishing Photos Of Underwater Restaurant In Norway That Has Just Been Completed

Under is the largest underwater restaurant in the world with a total seating capacity for a hundred guests. It is the first of its kind in Europe, and it functions as a research center for marine life as well. The Snøhetta-designed dining experience has just started operating, but people are already adding it to their Norway destination lists.


‘Under’ means both ‘below’ and ‘wonder’ in Norwegian. Half-sunken into the sea, the building’s 111-foot long monolithic form breaks the surface of the water to rest on the seabed below. Its structure is built to eventually integrate into its marine environment fully, as the roughness of the concrete shell will function as an artificial reef, welcoming limpets and kelp to inhabit it.


Thick concrete walls allow it to withstand shock and pressure from the rugged sea conditions and the restaurant’s sizeable panoramic window offers a view of the seabed as it changes throughout the seasons and varying weather conditions.


In Norway, Lindesnes is famous for its intense weather conditions, that can change from calm to stormy numerous times a day. Upon arriving at the site, the visitors' impressions of the unruly outdoors quickly dissolve as they're ushered through into the hushed, oak-clad foyer. The luxurious interiors create a warm, welcoming atmosphere inside the restaurant.


As a metaphor for descending from the land to the sea, textile-clad ceiling panels reference the colors of the sunset dropping into the ocean, accompanying one climbing down the stairs. Furthermore, the elegance of the finely woven ceiling panels provides the building with a serene ambiance.


The restaurant focuses on creating an excellent dining experience based on high quality, locally-sourced produce, emphasizing on sustainable wildlife capture. The Head Chef is Danish expatriate Nicolai Ellitsgaard from the acclaimed restaurant Måltid in Kristiansand accompanied by an international, 16-person kitchen team experienced in top Michelin restaurants.


The furniture represents the philosophy of the entire project too; to build stable structures without compromising the natural beauty which lies inherent in the raw materials.


Under is not merely a restaurant. The building houses a marine research facility as well. It welcomes interdisciplinary research teams which will be able to study fish behavior and marine biology through cameras and other measurement tools installed on and outside the restaurant's facade. They'll be able to document the population, behavior, and diversity of species that live in the surrounding areas. The research aims to collect data which can be programmed into machine learning tools that monitor the population dynamics of key marine species regularly.


As Snøhetta reports, Under is a story of contrasts: the contrast between landscape and sea as well as above and below. This project underscores the delicate ecological balance between land and sea and draws people's attention to sustainable models for responsible consumption.


The project emphasizes the coexistence of life on land and in the sea introducing a new way of understanding the relationship with our surroundings – under the water, above the surface, and alongside the life of the sea.
