British international studio Foster + Partners recently unveiled photos of the newly-opened Apple Store in Macau.

The facade of the spacious facility is made of thin layers of stone and glass with a trio of mirrored stainless-steel columns supporting its structure. Towering bamboo groves are planted at the store’s entrance as well as the atrium with a sizable skylight above it that offers plenty of natural light. In addition, there is a lantern affixed to the skylight for generous lighting during evening hours. On the first level, a 35-foot-by-15-foot video screen is placed across the entrance. Moreover, two grand stone staircases on the ground floor lead to the upper level that has areas dedicated to product tables as well as seating.
