Apple’s first “floating” store opened in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands on September 11. Formerly a nightclub, the glass-domed building appears to float on the water in front of the iconic Singapore skyline.
Taking inspiration from a floating lantern, Apple on Thursday opened its one-of-a-kind store in Singapore’s Marina Bay, which sits directly on the water. This is Apple’s third retail store in Singapore.
Apple’s Marina Bay Sands store is completely surrounded by water and offers 360-degree panoramic views of the city and its spectacular skyline.
The sphere is a first-of-its-kind, fully self-supporting, all-glass dome structure comprised of 114 pieces of glass with just 10 narrow vertical mullions for structural connection.
