Snøhetta | Under (water ) Restaurant
At the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline by the village of Båly, Snøhetta has designed Europe’s very first underwater restaurant. With its immediate proximity with the forces of nature, the restaurant, which will also function as a research center for marine life, is a tribute to the Norwegian coast and to Lindesnes – to the wild fauna of the sea and to the rocky coastline of Norway’s southern tip.
The building is currently being constructed on land on a barge, only a short walking distance from the plot. Soon the giant concrete construction will be submerged under the sea and attached safely to the bedrock. When the restaurant opens in the spring of 2019, it will provide an under-water experience inspiring a sense of awe and delight, activating all the senses – both physical and intellectual.
