Located five and a half metres beneath the surface of the North Sea, newly completed restaurant Under will be welcoming its first guests in April. The restaurant has a modest 40 tables and has already taken in excess of 7,000 reservations.
Under was designed by architectural practice Snøhetta and the driving force behind the project is brothers Gaute and Stig Ubostad, owners of Lindesnes Havhotell. The name Under refers both to the architecture that breaks through the waves and the process itself, which breaks with traditional construction engineering standards.
With its metre-thick concrete walls and solid acrylic windows, the restaurant is built to withstand the pressures exerted by the sea, waves and wind. Unlike the experience of being in an aquarium, Under functions as a submerged periscope designed as part of the natural surroundings and creating an artificial reef five and a half metres beneath the surface, with dramatic views across this rare ecosystem.
Many local entrepreneurs have participated in the project, including long-standing LK customer ERV Teknikk Lyngdal AS, which won the contract to engineer the restaurants pipework.
“We are delighted and proud to be able to contribute by providing the underfloor heating, tap water and LK PAL Universal Pipe for this unique project. We are now looking forward to the opening of the restaurant and wish Under the best of luck,” says Lars Petter Olsen, managing director of LK Systems Norway.
