Apple Hires Foster + Partners to Work on New Retail Store Designs?
Apple has reportedly hired Foster + Partners to work on new designs for its popular retail stores, according to Marketing Magazine.
Sources close to the project said Foster + Partners, which has designed buildings including the McLaren Technology Centre and Hearst Tower in New York, is helping Apple on the retail store design brief. In the past, Apple has worked with rival architecture firm 8 Inc for its trailblazing stores, with 8 Inc responsible for designing its flagship 5th Avenue and Regent Street stores.
Notably, Foster + Partners designed Apple's new 'spaceship' campus which has reportedly run over budget and behind schedule.
When asked about work on Apple's retail stores, a Foster + Partners spokeswoman said, "Any project for Apple is confidential and therefore we are unable to comment."
