6. Apple Pudong, Shanghai and Apple Jiefangbei, Chongqing – China

This is the idea that Steve Jobs successfully convinced designer Peter Bohlin, architect BCJ and collaborators, to redevelop the square according to the way the late CEO envisioned it. Apple’s design is extremely modern and unique in Pudong and Shanghai at the center of the square, with a cylindrical entrance up to 12.5m high and a spiral glass staircase leading to the 1500m2 store.

With the use of the ground glass that is similar to the shop in Pudong, the Apple Store in Shanghai has a special design with a cylinder shape, and a spiraling staircase will take you down to the store space. Apple even received a patent for this unique design because the process of making this perfect tubular curved glass is extremely complicated.

7. Apple Dubai Mall

Apple Dubai Mall is probably one of the most impressive Apple Stores in the world. Standing from the Apple Store, visitors can enjoy the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa. In addition, Apple Dubai Mall is also considered to have the best view of the artificial waterfall Dubai Fountain.

Notably, Apple Dubai Mall has a system of 18 “solar wings” with the effect of helping this Apple Store “interact” with the environmental conditions in Dubai better. Accordingly, when the sun rises, this window system will be closed by a rotating mechanism to ensure the temperature inside the store is cool. Meanwhile in the afternoon, when the sun goes down, the window system will be opened to show the great view and location of this Apple Store.

Final Thought

At the first announcement, this store model actually did not receive high praise for its ability to develop and expand. However, at present, the Apple Store is one of the most successful business models in the field of technology retail in particular and global business in general. In times of economic turmoil, Apple stores continue to grow and thrive in both numbers and impressive sales.

Apple Stores play a significant part in forming the “billion-dollar empire” of the Apple family, which is also a unique feature that Apple has built with the consumption habits of users around the world.
