A new 2.500 sq ft pharmacy designed and implemented by Sartoretto Verna has just been opened!
We are in the French speaking part of Canada. A new urban expansion named Agorà, in Quebec, a few kilometers away from downtown Ottawa.
It is a new pharmacy belonging to this inspiring gathering place, focused on people and sustainable development. The pharmacy owner, Dr Ali Kamel, was willing to create something unconventional, but well representing the modern and artistic mood of the surroundings with a mix of residential and commercial footage, well distributed over 1.000 apartment medium-rise buildings with a modern façade.
Sartoretto Verna is proud to have designed the pharmacy front-end, and created something appealing by putting together a unique experience of wellness and easiness in making clients approach.
The scope of work was meant to be focused on clinical services and environmentally friendly installations and operations. A very effective space usage had to be cladded with a modern and attractive appearance, representing the professional image of the new place, but at the same time using colors and images re-calling “creativity”, “movement” and “future”…
The need of creating an inviting and unique front- end was carried out by lodging the make-up corner items within the “RAL4.1” in Plexiglas back-panel with a wavy sequence of wall-stand units facing the transparent and vibrant green “A-kio” counter desk. Light green and white nuances underlined by a round suspended ceiling decoration above the welcome counter. The preciousness of this combination placed at the very entrance was then enriched by a special treatment of the shop window (i.e. “Ralboo” accessories), but also mitigated throughout the retail footage with a more reassuring sequence of “RAL7” wall-stand units and “Go-Plexi” transparent central stands arriving up to the OTC area with a flamboyance of colors and brightness (redness, light and dark green) to be proposed all over the exhibitor top visuals.
The final layout seems to be in balance between a place full of art but devoted to make one feel better.
The Pharmacy as “Art of healing”.
