Europe's first underwater restaurant to open in Norway

Europe's first underwater restaurant is set to open in early 2019 in Lindesnes, in the south of Norway. The planned concrete structure features a 36-foot wide panoramic window and is designed to become part of the marine environment, with a menu that will focus on seafood.
The restaurant, called "Under," is designed by Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta, famous for its work on the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt. It will stand on the sea bed five meters below the surface, with thick walls designed to withstand the most variable sea conditions. It will be Snøhetta's first underwater project.
"One of the benefits of this building is how it links nature and land, and how you can come safe from the land and in a very dramatic way go down through this concrete tube to the nature at sea level, and experience what normally is not experienced," said Rune Grasdal, lead architect on the project.
Visitors can expect three levels and a capacity of up to 100 people. Below the entrance and the cloakroom there will be a champagne bar, to mark the transition between shoreline and ocean. Further down there will be a dining room, with two long tables and several smaller ones positioned in front of the large acrylic window, which will be 13 feet tall.
Grasdal, who likened the building to a periscope, said it's important people feel secure and not claustrophobic. To achieve this the design team took into consideration a myriad of elements, like natural materials -- such as oak -- and good lighting. Grasdal explains: "it should be an exciting experience but people should also feel secure and well when sitting down there."
