Athens-based Kitriniaris Associates Architecture Firm (KAAF) has completed a pharmacy in Kryoneri, Attica, Greece with sleek yet functional design

Led by Alexandros Kitriniaris and Verina Myroforidou, the design team of KAAF has transformed a completely empty interior space into a comprehensive pharmacy, Cure + Cure. Their objective was to create a functionally unified space which does not interrupt the overall spatial continuity between the outer, public space of the shopping area and the private workspace of the pharmacists.

Floor-to-ceiling windows help create a spacious feel, with a black façade in stark contrast with the white walls of the interiors.  Both the floor as well as the display spaces in the centre of the shop space are covered with grey resinous cement, perceptually uniting the whole — the waterproof resinous cement is also designed to avoid erosion by tinctures and acids.

KAAF has created a visual curve for different areas within the store, enabling visitors to view all the products on display — this has contributed to them spending an increased time in the pharmacy.

In the laboratory, stainless steel sinks and refrigerators for medicines and vaccines have been used, while specific places have been designed to place equipment such as high-accuracy scales, volumetric tubes, magnetic heated baths as well as conical, heat-resistant vials.
