New Apple Store opens at Covent Garden Piazza

  • Comment

San Francisco-based practice Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has restored a Grade II-listed building in London’s Covent Garden for retail giant Apple

Apple’s 300th and largest store will open to the public this Saturday. The historic building enjoys a coveted retail spot at No. 1 The Piazza, and has been ‘sensitively restored’.

A new atrium with glazed roof allows light to flood into the courtyard below, where Apple Mac fanatics can try out the latest iPad or iPhone. Two glass stairways take shoppers up to a mezzanine of ‘innovative services’ including the Genius bar for technical support and the Community Room for in-house training on Mac software.

Ron Johnson, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail said: ‘Our store on Regent Street is one of the most popular and successful Apple stores in the world and we think the people of London will love the new Apple Store Covent Garden just as much.’
