In Norway, The First Underwater Restaurant In Europe Opened.-Welcome To Another World

If you are looking for something truly original, this restaurant will probably tickle your imagination. Made in Lindesnes, Norway, by visionary studio Snøhetta, it is the largest underwater restaurant in the world, and certainly the only one of its kind in Europe.

It’s called “Under”, a word which in Norwegian means both “under” and “wonder”. And looking at the photos taken inside, we agree with both definitions.

#1. The restaurant is a sort of 35-meter-long monolith half-submerged in the fascinating Norwegian Sea.

#2. It has been designed to integrate completely into the surrounding environment, considering that over time the surface will be colonized by molluscs.

#3. The huge reinforced concrete walls serve to withstand the extreme sea conditions, and the large windows offer a unique view of the underwater world.

#4. The experience that one lives inside is unique: on the one hand the subtle “fear” of being in a foreign place, on the other hand the breathtaking beauty of the view.

#5. The restaurant can accommodate a hundred people and of course only offers the highest quality dishes.

#6. The Lindesnes region, where the structure is located, is known for its extreme weather conditions, but as soon as you enter it you forget about the rain and the cold.

#7. The interiors have been designed to create a welcoming atmosphere, a kind of warm nest surrounded by the forces of nature.

#8. “Under” is not only a restaurant, inside there are research stations for the observation and monitoring of sea conditions.

#9. This wonderful project combines love and respect for nature with a passion for architecture and beauty. Here you can really get lost in your thoughts, surrounded by the silence of the underwater life and the dazzling beauty of modern architecture.
