According to a source, Apple are set to open their latest flagship store in Singapore and rumours said it’s going to be different and super cool. The latest flagship store is going to be the first floating Apple store in the world. Yes, you read it right, the huge global-shaped store will be floating on a bed of water.
Apple’s upcoming flagship store will be located at the neighbourhood of Marina Bay Sands which is really close to us! So, it won’t be a problem for us Malaysians to visit the store once it’s completed.
The final facade is not ready yet, however it is said the store will resemble a giant UFO like sitting on a bed of water. This uniqueness of the design makes it the only Apple retail store on the planet that floats on water.
“During the day, the store’s glass panels reflect the towering skyline of the Downtown Core and motion of the rippling water.
“At night, the sphere glows with a gentle warmth, evoking the design of traditional lanterns carried during Singapore’s Mid-Autumn Festival.”
The upcoming Apple store is accessible via a footbridge on the other side of the sphere and an underground tunnel that is linked to the mall at Marina Bay Sands. The spherical store was designed by Foster + Partners.
This upcoming flagsip store will be the third Apple store in Singapore – following the first store at Orchard Road and at Jewel Changi Airport.
