THE EVOLUTION OF PHARMACIES: FROM TRANSACTIONAL SPACES TO EXPERIENTIAL HUBS
A RADICAL SHIFT
In recent years, the pharmacy has undergone a profound transformation, evolving from a mere transactional space to an experiential hub. The pharmaceutical industry is swiftly adapting to new customer needs and the potential offered by technology. Here’s how architects specialized in pharmacy design can steer this transition.
WHY TRANSACTIONS ARE NO LONGER ENOUGH
The advent of online platforms for selling medications and health products has rendered the simple in-store transaction obsolete.
With increasing attention to well-being and quality of life, today’s customers seek much more than a mere purchase: they desire an experience.
KEY ELEMENTS TO CREATING EXPERIENTIAL SPACES
USER-CENTERED DESIGN Design that places the individual at the core goes beyond mere aesthetics to improve customer interaction and engagement.
TECHNOLOGICAL INTEGRATION Adopting technologies such as informational touchscreens, smartphone apps, and indoor navigation systems can enrich the customer experience.
PERSONALIZATION The use of modular and flexible environments allows for customization of the experience for each visitor, from self-care areas to private consultation spaces.
CASE STUDIES: PHARMACIES AS COMMUNITY HUBS
Pharmacies are becoming multifunctional spaces where you can access a broad range of health services, participate in well-being workshops, and even enjoy a cup of tea in a relaxing environment. This transformation is proving how pharmacies can become true community hubs.
