The specific assignment included the decoration, the equipment and the construction of a pharmacy in Athens. The primary challenge was the vast ground-floor space and the equally large facade, which had to be shaped in such a way that they did not look massive.
The orthogonal space helped to develop symmetry in the display of the products, which were placed around the perimeter of the pharmacy. Each group of formulations overruns a specific area, creating order and ease in their detection. Opposite the entrance a long narrow wooden service counter is waiting to aid, while behind it the wall drawer fully supports the work of the pharmacist.
The large facade is interrupted gently by a fundamental pillar which was finished with veneered wood and was used as a point of contact between customers and the pharmacy during closed hours. A screen was installed for product presentation, marketing purposes and medical information.
The practical use of wood and glass, in combination with the earthy subtle colors on the walls and the floor, give the feeling of cleanliness and hygiene. The result, with the high aesthetics and the minimal references, transmits character to the pharmacy and sufficiently covers all the functional and communication needs of the customer.
