This morning in Southlake, Texas, Apple reopened its store in the Southlake Town Square shopping district with an all-new design. The grand reopening comes just in time for the release of new iPads and Macs on November 7th. Customers will recall that the store closed on March 4th of this year for renovations. Over the past eight months, Apple essentially rebuilt the store and massively expanded its footprint.

The new Apple Southlake Town Square follows a template of similar Today at Apple-centric remodeling projects across the globe, but includes a few special details. While most recent outdoor Apple stores in modest shopping centers have featured a polished white facade and ceiling lined with light panels, Southlake’s new store joins Apple Lehigh Valley in pioneering a revised aesthetic.

Lightly textured stone walls, a wood paneled ceiling, and a generous overhang are signature features of the new look. These architectural details were once reserved for more significant standalone stores like flagships in Chicago and Seoul. Apple now appears to be setting a precedent of bringing the same design elements to smaller locations. The result is a space that feels warmer, more natural, and very familiar.
