The Apple Park Visitor Center opened in Cupertino, welcoming neighbors and guests from surrounding areas to experience Apple Park’s innovations. The Visitor Center is a uniquely designed architectural extension of the new campus with similar aesthetics in staircases, stone walls and terrazzo floors.
Apple Park Visitor Center
The Visitor Center’s cantilevered carbon fiber roof appears to float and is only supported by stone clad cores and no other extraneous columns for support. Guests are also welcome to make their way upstairs to the roof terrace for beautiful views of the main building and some of the 9,000 native and drought resistant trees on the grounds.
As they return to the first floor they are invited to visit the cafe surrounded by olive trees or the store with Apple’s full range of consumer products and exclusive Apple and Apple Park branded merchandise. With comfortable seating both inside and out, the Cafe serves refreshments for guests to enjoy as they take in the surrounding olive grove.
Inviting guests to explore Apple Park in an immersive and engaging way, a 3D model of the campus is brought to life by augmented reality technology. Visitors can learn about the world’s largest naturally ventilated building and view one of the largest on-site solar energy installations in the world. They can also choose to lift the entire roof off the Apple building to peek inside to the collaborative office pod layout.
