Apple’s new retail store in Singapore is very different from every other Apple store in the world. It’s an orb that floats on water in front of the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel, adding flavor to Singapore’s impressive skyline (well, waterline).
The store is not yet open to the public, so we don’t know what it looks like on the inside, but there are already plenty of photographs from the outside.
Apple has a webpage devoted to the new store, where it’s described as “a space for you to explore, connect and create something new.” On the same page, Apple has a short teaser video for the store, as well as a couple of wallpapers.
9to5Mac has a few other visuals and some copy related to the store. Among other details, it says that “an elevated boardwalk and underwater passage connect the pavilion to the shore and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands,” which sounds very cool.
When night falls, the orb glows in a multitude of colors — check out some night shots here.
The Apple Marina Bay Sands store will be Apple’s third store in Singapore, the other two are located at Orchard Road and Jewel Changi Airport. Apple says the new floating store will be opening “soon.”
