Developed in association with the store’s designers, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Apple’s largest store to date occupies the entire north-west corner arcade elevation of Covent Garden’s market piazza. The store is centred around an original courtyard, with refurbished stone arched elevations, and a new glazed roof with exposed stainless steel structure. Departing from Apple’s classic stainless steel interior concept, this store celebrates the juxtaposition of contemporary furniture and finely executed glass stairs, with exposed brick, concrete soffits, and plated steel structural elements of the original building.
The Apple store in Covent Garden is their largest store to date and with associated office and BOH areas totals 60,000 sqft. The 20,000 sq ft retail area occupies the lower three floors of the Grade II listed building forming the entire arcaded elevation to the North West corner fronting onto the historic Covent Garden market piazza.
The store is centred around an original courtyard with refurbished stone arched elevations and a new minimalist glazed roof with exposed stainless steel structure. The interior finishes mark a departure from their standard stainless steel panelled store interiors and celebrates the juxtaposition of the contemporary furniture pieces and finely executed glass stairs with the existing and remodelled exposed brick, concrete soffits and plated steel/cast iron structural elements.
