Architectural highlights of Apple Orchard Road include the twin curved Castagna stone staircases and a unique 7.6-metre canopy that protects the store from tropical sunlight and provides shelter from the rain.

Visitors can look forward to “”, a new programme that includes 60 free hands-on sessions held at The Forum in the store.
