“Under” – Europe’s First Underwater Restaurant

In Norway, there is a restaurant that is five and a half meters below the surface, exposing you to the wonders of the depths of the sea.

The Underwater Restaurant in Norway Is Seriously Epic.

At Under, a Snøhetta-designed eatery balanced on the Norwegian shore, customers eat 16 feet under the water.

The project is situated in a special confluence where the sea storms from the north and south converge at the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline.

Here, marine life thrives in both brackish and salty waters, creating a place with a naturally rich biodiversity.

At Under guests dine 16 feet below the ocean surface

The restaurant’s enormous window provides a view of the seabed as it varies with the seasons and various weather conditions, much like a sunken periscope.

A tribute to the sea’s untamed flora and the rugged coastline of southern Norway, the Snhetta-designed restaurant also serves as a research facility for marine life.

“Under” in Norwegian can signify both “below” and “wonder.” The building’s 34-meter-long monolithic form breaches the water’s surface and rests straight on the seabed five meters below, half-sunk into the ocean.

As the concrete shell’s roughness will serve as an artificial reef, luring limpets and kelp to dwell it, the building is intended to gradually blend into its maritime environment.

The building is constructed to endure pressure and stress from the rough sea conditions, with its massive concrete walls leaning against the jagged beach.
