Architects transform submarine into a bar

Jun 03, 2012 by Administrator

Two hundred and fifty years ago, brewer Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease for his St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. To commemorate this event, the Guinness Company could have rolled out a stretch limousine, but it decided to go one better by launching a “deep-sea bar” in the chilly waters of the Baltic off Stockholm, Sweden. Designed by London-based Jump Studios, the modified tourist submarine was commissioned as part of the Guinness Sea Experience competition, that included an underwater trip inside the Guinness sub as a prize.
