It can be said that Under will be a treat for all the enthusiasts of architecture. Initially, the restaurant was started on the barge of a coast and then shifted to its position which is almost 600 ft. away from the coast. While shifting, a heavy lifting vessel was put to use. The hotel reminiscent looks like a rock that is rising from the sea. This looks similar to an art installation.For submerging the whole structure, the inside was filled with water contained containers. Total 18 anchor points were fixed so that the whole structure could be submerged at ease. More than half of the building is submerged. Therefore, visitors will get a view of both the atmosphere and the water underneath. Guests will enter through a glass walkway which will be placed at the shore level. This beautiful artifice is the creation of none other than the award-winning architectural firm Snohetta.Under is constructed by reinforced concrete so that it can withstand all kinds of harsh conditions that can attack the Norwegian coastline. Senior architect, Grasdal has said that the major problem here is that of water pressure since the restaurant is five meters below the sea level. However, the biggest challenge the restaurant has to face is the waves. This particular location is more hit by wind and waves. For being able to face these circumstances, the building is made slightly tilted and curved. Its thickness is 1.6 feet (for the concrete) and 1 foot (for the windows).
