Photos Show Striking Glass Design For Turkey’s First Apple Store



Some photos have leaked showing Apple’s first Turkish physical retail store days before it opens.

The images were posted to Instagram by user orbaygumus, and depict a large cuboid glass structure, similar to the glass installations at Apple Stores in New York and Shanghai. All that is currently missing is a giant Apple logo.

Apple’s Istanbul Store is set to open its doors at 10am local time on Saturday, April 5 — located in the city’s high end Zorlu Shopping Center. Tim Cook is expected to attend the opening, alongside Turkish president Abdullah Gül.


The store reportedly covers 21,500-square-feet of space, and includes a showroom floor, special event areas, and dual Genius Bars.

Apple got its first online Apple Store back in November, while earlier this year a team of Apple executives met with Turkish president Gül today to discuss a deal that could see the 15 million iPads introduced to Turkish schools.

    is it just me or is the actual wooden table/black stool layout looking a bit tired? I absolutely adore the great architectural feats Apple puts into the exterior of these stores, but inside they’re all clones..
