The much-anticipated Apple store in Paris opened its doors over the weekend. Designed by Foster + Partners, the space is at the crux of classical architecture and high-tech contemporary design. The company opened its latest brick-and-mortar location on the famous Champs-Élysées in, what is described as, the "quintessential Parisian apartment".
Through lush vegetation, preservation of elegantly masterful modes of romantic architecture, and the influx of contemporary elements and lightning, the Apple store in Paris is truly able to channel its surrounding, creating a seamless integration into the retail scene of the city.
The experience of visiting the store alone is noteworthy. Guests enter the beautiful apartment-style tech shop through a 19th-century Parisian passage and can marvel at the beautiful kaleidoscopic solar rooftop.
