When architectural firm Foster + Partners were designing the flagship Apple store in Singapore, they created a location with large windows and a thin, white canopy that cantilevers out 25 feet.

To make the interior of the space memorable, they used large stone walls and two spectacular curved staircases made from Castagna stone.

The staircases were hand-carved by Italian artisans to create add a sculptural element to the interior. The stairs also feature integrated handrails which have a tactile and smooth finish.
