The London-based designer group Foster + Partners designed the new Chicago Apple Store roof. The unique MacBook roof stands out and apart from all other roofs in the Chicago area.
Different is an understatement describing the new roof for Apple’s new 20,000 square-foot store in Chicago. It’s quite obvious the designer group Foster + Partners wanted to step outside the box and give this new flagship store an A-1 rating in being distinct and unique in the Chicago district for roof design.
This week the construction crew placed the large white curved metallic Apple logo resembling a MacBook on the new flagship store. The roof is made from a lightweight material that is used in yacht hulls to keep the roof thin. It’s said to be four feet thick at its widest point and four inches at the narrowest point. The store is also said to have all-glass walls which will range from 14 to 32 feet in height, and are made out of four layers of half-inch thick glass which is joined together with layers of strong, thick laminated glass.
At this point Apple has not indicted when this new Chicago store will open, but you can be sure when the date draws closer for completion, new updates on the interior, exterior and the grand opening will be talked about. So just stay tuned for more updates and news on Apple’s up and coming Chicago flagship Apple store.
