A unique space proves to be creative casework canvas for North Carolina health system.
With the nearest retail pharmacy being more than 30 minutes away, this North Carolina community was in need of a convenient, local solution. Working together in concert, the client, architect and Patterson Pope together reclaimed a rustically designed house and refitted it for the task at hand. While not many pharmacies can claim to boast a fireplace or stone façade, both are fine features of this new, unique location. Pharmacists and clientele are now both reaping the benefits of medical expertise and imaginative design.

The retail pharmacy is part of a large hospital system in the state. Taking the time and initiative to introduce several casework solutions into the space, the team helped transform the 1,300 square foot home into a convenient community attribute. The result was a building that matched the community esthetic and a professional facility that served the needs of thousands.
