Shortlisted for architectural lighting design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Light Bureau has created the architectural lighting for a restaurant that has been partially submerged in southern Norway.
The design's coarse concrete structure makes it easy for mussels to cling to its surface, acting as an artificial reef, whilst unique subsea lighting scenarios attract marine life, which help rinse the sea water and increase biodiversity.
The interior lighting ensures a warm and intimate experience inside the restaurant, without disturbing the view of the wonders beneath the sea, while the exterior subsea lighting makes various species of marine wildlife visible from inside the restaurant.
Designer: Light Bureau
