Similar to the Apple Cube in New York, multi-layered glass fins, which are used for anchoring the panels via joint fittings through the joint, sit behind the frontal glazing. The street had to be cordoned off in order for the construction to be assembled. The deadline for delivering and setting up the panels was tight and, owing to the increased breakage risk, the work required a particularly high level of concentration. Special equipment was produced for the task, including a vacuum lifting pad with the requisite suction power and a flexurally rigid framework construction to counter the sag of the panels as they were lifted up. The result is an extremely puristic glass façade whose elegance could hardly be surpassed. The all-glass stairs suspended between two steel stair stringers with stainless-steel panelling loom in the background. Their clear form and steadfast eschewal of anything superfluous lend the building that special Apple Store touch: design of the highest order.
