The store features a unique, tiered white pyramid architectural design. This will be the sixth Apple Store in south-east Asia, following three in Singapore and two in Thailand.

Apple now has a webpage for the store and shared a number of wallpapers for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac to celebrate its opening, incorporating the Apple logo and the word "Jom," which means "let's go" or "come on" in Malay.

While Apple does not manufacture iPhones in Malaysia, it does produce some Mac models in the country. Apple's decision to establish a retail store in Malaysia is part of its strategy to expand its retail footprint in key Asian markets, where it faces fierce competition from local tech companies.

Apple The Exchange TRX will officially open its doors for the first time at 10 a.m. local time on June 22.

Looks like a toilet block. Yuk.
It's clearly been deliberately designed to keep at bay the heavy sunlight, heat, and humidity of that area.
So the design is appropriate for the region it's being built in, which is how things should be done.
