featuring 16 bays of storefront glass punctuated by calatrava‘s  ‘oculus’ white steel beams, bohlin cywinski jackson intended the 12,000 square foot (1,115 square meter) space to have a connection to the adjacent public atrium, as well as the surrounding retail spaces. the interiors include apple’s signature oak tables, with complementary warm wall and floor finishes designed to create a welcoming environment that draws in passersby.
