This new retail pharmacy building incorporated a drive-through prescription window for customer convenience.  A two-story interior allowed for the introduction of natural light deep into the sales area.

Project Description


A copper colored metal roof coordinates with the natural hues of the brick exterior and limestone base.  Traditional masonry detailing, lighting and canvas awnings blend into the existing Village character.

Planning for the pharmacist's work area included a robotic prescription dispensing system and isolated compounding area.  Separate office and conference/break rooms were also included.

Interior 1

Aluminum clad wood windows, schoolhouse-type light fixtures and oak trim were chosen to impart a traditional feel to the interior of the retail space.

A wood paneled partial height wall defines the mezzanine storage area which is accessed by an open stair with wood balusters and railing.
