Situated in Singapore’s picturesque Marina Bay, Apple’s latest retail store is a sight to behold. Not just because it’s shaped like an orb, but also due to the fact that it’s the world’s first Apple store that floats on water. Referred to as ‘The lantern on the bay,’ the entire ball of glass is covered with sporadic stripes of varied opacity, and leading up to the store is a curved timber bridge that adds a lot of character to the structure. But that’s not the only entrance to this majestic place. Since this store is located on the property of the Marina Bay Sands hotel, you can also enter through an underground tunnel that it boasts of.

During the day, the glistening glass surfaces of this store reflect the towering skyline of the city, while in the night, it glows with a gentle warmth to evoke the design of traditional lanterns carried during Singapore’s Mid-Autumn Festival. This is the third Apple store in Singapore and the other two also happen to be sights to behold, by the way.
