Originally From https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/25/images-apple-orchard-road-singapore/ After <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/22/interior-apple-orchard-road/”>removing the barricades</a> from its brand new retail location in Singapore, Apple this week has allowed a few reporters to tour the inside of Apple Orchard Road ahead of its grand opening this Saturday, May 27 (via <a href=”http://mashable.com/2017/05/25/apple-singapore-store/#H_Ijmz.NRqqn”><em>Mashable</em></a>).

The outside of the store features an all-glass design that spans 120 feet, allowing anyone passing by to glimpse into the two-story location. The bottom level of the store houses the traditional retail aspect of Apple locations, letting customers browse and purchase products like iPhone, Apple Watch, and <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/retina-macbook-air/”>MacBook</a>.

A curved staircase inspired by <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/apple-park/”>Apple Park</a> leads up to the second story where customers will find a large grove of trees that was specially brought in from Malaysia, and that Apple hopes gives off a “modern-day town square” vibe. Next to the trees sit a collection of cubes and a large screen — an area specifically designed for “Today at Apple” events.

In one moment during the media’s tour through Apple Orchard Road, an illustrator was seen drawing on <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/ipad/”>iPad</a> with <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/apple-pencil/”>Apple Pencil</a>, and the store was displaying her progress on the screen. Like all Today at Apple events, the company wants customers to be able to walk into Apple at any time of the day and find inspiration.

“You can see an illustrator just sitting over there and we’re air-playing her illustration on the video wall — that’s the real goal at Apple.
