Snøhetta adds yet another landmark to its extensive repertoire. at the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline by the village of båly, the architecture firm has designed Europe’s very first underwater restaurant. with its immediate proximity to the forces of nature, the restaurant, which will also function as a research center for marine life, is a tribute to the Norwegian coast and to Lindesnes – to the wild fauna of the sea and to the rocky coastline of Norway’s southern tip.

Half-sunken into the sea, the building’s monolithic form breaks the water surface to lie against the craggy shoreline.
