. . . if you have been reading for a while, you will know about a longstanding love affair with vaulted, soaring and perfectly ornate ceilings, intricate crown moulding and wood panelled walls, and so, fell completely for the design of the most recent apple store, paris opéra, in the 9e arrondissement; known as the 'most un-apple apple store', the glass-and-steel of trademark elements like the staircase, have fallen away to wood and wrought iron, creating a perfect juxtaposition of old & new, traditional & modern . . .

This is gorgeous and my favorite out of all the apple stores. Is it a new building or have they restored an existing one?
