International architecture firm Snøhetta recently unveiled its plans for an underwater dining venue that looks as though it is in the process of sinking.
The dynamic venue set to be built in southern Norway takes the form of a long, concrete box with half of its form visible on the coastline and the remaining portion of the building submerged. Although the building will be first and foremost used as an underwater dining destination for up to 100 people, secondary uses of the structure include it being a marine research centre and an artificial mussel reef. As Snøhetta describes: "More than an aquarium, the structure will become a part of its marine environment."
This new project, 'Under,' designed by Snøhetta is set to be introduced as Europe's first underwater restaurant.
