Apple’s worldwide retail network may be fighting during the COVID-19 pandemic. But this has not stopped the company from reveling in its penchant for pricey-looking, unique, and unusual exterior design. Apple’s newest retail store, located in Singapore on the city-state’s waterfront and known officially as Apple Marina Bay Sands. It’s the only Apple retail shop in the world that floats on water.
Apple Jewel Changi Airport, located in the world-famous retail sector of Singapore’s transportation hub. That also features the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
During the daytime, the new Apple store appears to look like an odd spacecraft. But at nighttime, when Singapore’s iconic skyline is lit in all its glory in the background. The store comes alive and you can tell the company designed it as an evening fixture best viewed in the dark.
We don’t have a lot of details on the location, like how exactly the interior is structured. We do know that the store is Apple’s 512th retail shop globally and that it’s opening sometime soon.
MacRumors got its hands on a neat little teaser video Apple made to promote the store’s opening. Showing a custom graphic meant to emulate the look of the thin light lines that spread across the orb at night.

“During the day, the store’s glass panels reflect the towering skyline of the Downtown Core and motion of the rippling water. At night, the sphere glows with a gentle warmth, evoking the design of traditional lanterns carried during Singapore’s Mid-Autumn Festival,” one of the slides reads. “The pavilion dome narrows to an oculus, allowing unobstructed light to flood in. A birds-eye view of the store resembles a glass iris peering into the sky.”
According to the marketing material, the store will “include the same measures found at Singapore’s other Apple Stores” regarding ongoing COVID-19 health and safety efforts, which include limited occupancy, mask-wearing, and other sanitization requirements.
