Europe’s First Underwater Restaurant

Piercing out of the water and onto the shoreline of Båly in Norway is Under, an underwater restaurant by Snøhetta. Essentially a concrete tube, the restaurant is constructed out of a 34-meter-long and 1/2-meter-thick slab of concrete—allowing for an organic appearance and ample protection from the surrounding water. Diners enter above sea-level and descend down a flight of stairs to the main dining room and bar. The tables in the main seating area are turned to face the floor-to-ceiling window that looks out into the ocean. Plus, the restaurant will work to highlight the biodiversity of the ocean with its menu and offer space to marine biologists for research when it’s not open. Read more at Dezeen.
