Istanbul’s first Apple store was a project by foster + partners and it occupies two floors in the main plaza, at Zorlu Center. The only thing that you see when approaching the store is a rectangular and transparent volume quite similar to the glass cube entrance in New York. The volume is beautifully lit at night, glowing like a giant lantern and attracting anyone passing by. But while this is the part of the store that’s above ground, the rest of it is underground and it’s connected to the shopping mall.
