Apple recently opened a new store in Macau, as the company’s chief design officer Sir Jonathan Ive worked on the design alongside Foster + Partners. Previously, the tandem collaborated on Apple’s Michigan Avenue (Chicago) and Regent Street (London) locations.

Apple Cotai Central was created to be “an inviting, contemplative space, where technology, entertainment, and arts come together to make a positive contribution to the city.” Pedestrians are then drawn to the flagship by an inviting bamboo grove and external event plaza. Upon walking into the store, patrons are greeted with shimmering stone panels and a glass-stone composite façade, coated with mirrored stainless steel to reflect patterns and colors.

While natural light makes its way into the space during various hours of the day, the interior is also highlighted by a central skylight. Connecting the floors are two majestic stone staircase, illuminated by skylight strips.
