The new Apple store called the 'Apple Orchard Road' has a 120-foot glass fa├žade that blurs the line between inside and out, while 16 interior trees continue the city's lush greenery throughout the space.

 

The Apple Orchard Road store opened this morning at 10 a.m. to thousands of customers who queued to explore Apple's first store in Southeast Asia. Braving the equatorial heat as early as Friday night, customers were greeted by Apple's Angela Ahrendts and the store's 237 employees when doors opened.
