Scuba diving has seen spectacular growth in its popularity over the past decade. In that respect, I have designed a sketch proposal for a new diving centre in the region of Hvaler, Norway. The project has the intention to produce a specific atmosphere, a setting able to raise the value of each diver’s experience. Use of dramatic shapes and structures, creates an explicit connection between building and context; steel, concrete and wood are materials all used to accentuate the mightiness of the surrounding nature. Situated in the rocky landscape, the centre reveals itself to the visitors progressively as they approach; a picturesque quality which makes this composition intriguing and adventurous from first glance.
