Snøhetta’s underwater restaurant embraced

Posted by in category: materials

Architecture studio Snøhetta has released photos showing how its underwater restaurant, Under, has become covered in marine life since reaching completion in Norway three years ago.

Located in the remote Lindesnes area, the 495-square-metre structure is submerged off of a craggy shoreline and now doubles as an artificial reef.

The Norwegian studio designed Under as a concrete tube that is intended to resemble a sunken periscope. The concrete was left exposed externally, forming a rough finish onto which algae and molluscs can latch.
