Inside Apple’s revamped London store

October 31, 2016 / OLD news posts

Real trees, gigantic arched windows and twin staircases made from honey-coloured, sandblasted Castagna stone – there’s a lot more to look at in Apple’s revamped Regent Street store than the latest computers and tablets. Apple worked closely with British architects Foster + Partners to restore the Grade II-listed building, cleaning its façade of Portland stone and Carrara marble and seeking out sympathetic materials to create a complementary yet super modern interior. The trees add a much-needed organic touch and accentuate the soaring height of the space, where daily entertainment and learning events are as much of a draw as the super-slick gadgets. (apple.com)
