After a year of renovations, the Regent Street Apple store in London is opening on Oct. 15, and members of the press were given a sneak peek of the interior prior to the big day.

In the first stages of the renovation in 2015 and early 2016, the store had been conducting business from the basement, however the shop has been completely shut down since June 13.

The new ground floor renovation has has added 12 trees, and circular sofas for customers. The new upstairs "loft" area houses the "Creative Pros" area of the store, for consultation with Apple experts on specialty software and other business needs.

Apple routinely shuts down and renovates its retail stores, but the Regent Street modifications is much more extensive than other efforts with major structural modifications, facade alteration, and central staircase replacement made on the historic building.
