Snøhetta's creation offers a view of the seabed through the changing seasons

Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta has designed the first underwater restaurant in Europe. Located at the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline, the building is half-sunken into the sea and has meter-thick concrete walls to help it withstand pressure and shock from the rugged conditions.

The restaurant accommodates 80-100 guests and has large acrylic windows offering a view of the seabed as it changes over the seasons. It will also function as a research center, welcoming interdisciplinary teams studying marine biology and fish behavior, who will help optimize conditions on the surrounding seabed so fish and shellfish can thrive.
