Apple has shared renders of its proposed retail store that would occupy the former Carnegie Library in Washington, D.C.

The Carnegie Library in Mount Vernon Square opened in 1903 as the first desegregated public build in the city. It was built with funds donated by steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie. Apple plans to restore the building to its original grandeur and will hold free concerts, art exhibitions, and various workshops at the location.

Where the Carnegie Library once housed the city’s book collection, Apple plans a “Genius Grove,” a tree-lined sales floor where company reps will demonstrate how to maximize Apple products for music, photography or other passions. What long ago were reading rooms would become places to browse and sample Apple products.

“This is a way of creating a reason to come to the store, to touch and feel our products, but also to have an engaging experience with someone who is passionate about the same thing,” said B.J. Siegel, Apple Retail’s senior design director.

Apple plans on installing skylights above a central events area. It will present its plans to the Advisory Neighborhood Commission this evening.

Take a look at a couple renders below...
