There's No Place More Tranquil Than This Japanese Pharmacy

New, 1 comment

Despite the growing number of striking, minimalist pharmacies out there, there's something about this oak-lined dispensing center in Tokyo that's even lovelier and more calming than the rest. Designed by the Japanese firm Hiroyuki Ogawa Architects, the Fuji Pharmacy—which functions as a resource for people recovering from prescription drug addiction—is outfitted in muted whites and grays, with furniture arranged to resemble a "traditional Japanese house," and a general emphasis on imbuing the place with restorative powers. "We carefully chose materials and composed space to have customers feel tranquility and kindness," explains lead architect Hiroyuki Ogawa. "We hope customers make a recovery from both prescription drugs and the lounge itself." Take a look, below:
