A CONVERSATION WITH THE HEAD CHEF AND DESIGNER OF EUROPE’S FIRST UNDERWATER RESTAURANT
Under – Europe’s first underwater restaurant, and the world’s largest – the bold entrepreneurial endeavour of brothers and hoteliers Stig and Gaute Ubostad.
Entering Under is a descent into mystery and awe, a step outside your comfort zone through an impeccable symbiosis of cuisine and design.
We dove into the dining experience with head chef Nicolai Ellitsgaard Peterson, whose 18-course meal of organic forms and stimulating creations earned Norway its first Michelin star.
"The forests and the oceans are so inspiring."
Smooth, modern spaces move you gradually to the sea bed, in a serene setting contrasting the harsh outdoor conditions. Rune Grasdal of Snøhetta answered all our design questions.
It was a collaboration with engineers with special expertise from the North Sea oil industry and from tunnel construction in Norway.
