One of the best things about Apple Store design is how Apple’s architects find ways to embrace local design elements, while still making the stores feel connected to one another.

The latest example of this is the stunning Foster + Partners design for the new Apple Aventura store in Miami, Florida. The most notable aspect of the store’s design is its undulating vaulted roof. This was intended to represent the city’s nautical history.

Although Apple Stores have certain design elements in common, the company still enjoys finding ways to localize them wherever possible.

That’s exactly what’s set to happen with its new Miami-based Aventura Mall store. According to a new report, the South Florida store will boast Miami-style design elements, such as a Genius Grove with a canopy of 22-foot tall tropical trees.
