Apple has announced that its flagship store housed inside Washington D.C.’s historic Carnegie Library will open later this month.

The plans to renovate the 118-year-old building were announced some two years ago, and following months of restoration and design from Foster + Partners — the same team who developed most of its recent stores – Apple is now ready to launch its latest concept retail facility.

The Carnegie Library store features the now synonymous community-orientated store concept, seeing Genius Grove lined with trees and a central skylight to let the historic building’s architecture shine. Apple describes the Carnegie Library flagship as a “space to learn, where everyone is welcome to come and discover all kinds of creativity, connect with new ideas, and share their stories.”

Apple will share the space with the Historical Society of Washington, DC and the Kiplinger Research Library. Apple’s website suggests the shared space will lend itself to a number of creative events, as it promised to deliver “6 weeks. 40 creators. From May 18 to June 29, learn from inspiring D.C. artists to shape your story through photo, video, music, and art.”

You can check out the brand new Apple store from May 11, when it opens at 11 AM.
