The long sides consist of 4 facade panels each, both the short sides and the roof of 1 glass panel each. The special feature of this structure is that the glass panels are connected only by structural silicone, and not by stainless steel fittings. The resulting maximum transparency makes the entrance of the retail store a real highlight. On the short face, a single leaf glass door is integrated into the facade, serving as an entrance door. The facade panels are anchored in the ground by a stainless steel structure all around.
With this retail store, Apple has created another store with a unique design and, at the same time, redesigned a whole plaza, inviting people to linger outside the store. seele has once again proved its outstanding competence in all-glass structures with this project.
