Apple Store, Covent Garden

The Apple Store, Covent Garden occupies the first three levels of a nineteenth century hotel and adjacent warehouse building facing Inigo Jones' market square in London's West End. The building's interior has been restored to its essence, revealing the hallmarks of its early industrial revolution construction: iron structural frame, rustic brick walls, and concrete deck.

At the center of the space, a crisp stainless steel skylight caps what was once the delivery forecourt for horse-drawn carriages. Deep within the building, a linear glass stair and elevator have been inserted into a restored lightwell. Together, these brightly daylit multistory spaces have been created to bring order and provide strong visual anchors within the existing compartmentalized interior.
