Snohetta Underwater Restaurant In Norway

Oct 24, 2017

Category: Living

Seaside restaurants are great and all, but how about reserving a table for two in the deep blue sea? New York and Oslo-based architectural firm Snohetta want to make that a reality with their jaw-dropping Underwater restaurant.

The large, concrete building will look something like a periscope half-submerged in water and propped up against the shore. Located in the Norwegian village of Baly, this proposed building will feature an exclusive dining establishment seating a reported 100 people underwater along with a marine studies facility. A main attraction of the building will be the 11-meter wide panoramic window located at the submerged end of the tube-like structure – allowing those dining to look out onto the ocean floor. The meter-thick concrete walls will protect guests from the harsh, unwelcoming ocean, while the course concrete will serve as a home for mussels and other sea life to attach themselves to. A symbiotic relationship if we’ve ever seen one.
