De Lairesse Pharmacy

In this project concrete took the clientʼs statement ʻitʼs all right to change everything; all I need is a chest of drawersʼ as a starting point. After all, the only way to organise a pharmacy is by means of drawers to store medications. In addition to conventional medicine, De Lairesse Pharmacy has one of the largest offers of alternative medication in the Netherlands. Within the pharmacy, customers are surrounded by drawers filled with both synthetic and natural medicine. This generates confidence and a sense of mental and physical well-being. As a literal translation of the clientʼs vision, the interior of the pharmacy uses a clear mix of materials.
