Judges comments:

“Having the stations float above the floor maintains an open, spacious feel.”—Nunes

“The attempts to return the building to its roots was effective, yet kept modern with splashes of color and design.”—Koerner

“What an enjoyable space! From the Eames-inspired styling chairs to the charming classic Spanish architecture, this space is designed for success.”—Pelafas

“We were inspired by Apple stores and the new philosophy of the ‘frictionless experience.’ We don’t have a front desk, we book appointments and ring up service on handheld devices right at the station or in the comfort of our reception room.”
