Pharmacy by Zouridakis Architects, Gazi – Crete, Greece. Pharmacies up to now had the tendencies of being actually boring and non wanted in the world of architecture.
From the time the actual medicine – drug became industrialized and not made by the pharmacist so did the the image of the establishment as well.

Contact Lens Store - Tel Aviv, Israel. Complicated is easy, minimalist is difficult.
Even more difficult is minimalist design that stands out. That is why we love this little contact lens shop in Tel Aviv, Israel. It is a store concept for Adashot by EyeCare designed by Lee-Ran Shlomi Gidron of Tel Aviv-based Miss Lee Design. It is apparently the first and only store in Israel that sells nothing but contact lenses.
And that posed the main challenge of this project: How to display something as tiny and indistinguishable as contact lenses? Trendy by Vision Express optician saloon by EMKWADRAT Architekci, Lodz – Poland. Trendy by Vision Express is a new place in Manufaktura Centre in Lodz designed by EMKWADRAT Architekci – an architecture studio from Warsaw.
The project covered creation of a new logo, the design of furnishing elements and most of all interior architecture of an optic saloon dedicated to people who appreciate the highest quality, elegance, comfort, but also like to be intrigued with an interesting, sophisticated form. The space, minimalistic in terms of color and material palette, draws attention with the play of strong contrasts and the dynamic modeling of refracting surfaces of walls, furniture and mirrors. The aesthetic counterpoints to this “geometry of crystal” are the ovals of soft seats, cozy carpets and natural feeling of wood. The interior is divided into clear zones of merchandise exposure and customer service. The luminous white wall surrounding the space is a spectacular background for each collection of glasses frames. AESOP - Skin Care That Thinks Outside The Box.
Since being established by Dennis Pahitis twenty years ago, Aésop skin care has become an uncontested success story in the notoriously fickle beauty industry — focused on providing its worldwide clientele with the highest quality botanical skin care, rather than subscribing to mainstream-cosmetic anti-aging hype.
Aésop now have 78 international stockists, plus 20 signature stores including stores in Paris, London, Sydney and their most recent Melbourne addition, Flinders Lane. In keeping with Aésop tradition — that every store is different; conceived and designed individually so as that each store is a reflection and celebration of its location — the Flinders Lane store does not disappoint, providing its customers with a design and infrastructure that is just as alternative as Aésop’s skin care products.

Architect Nader Tehrani explained: "Aesop has carefully considered dimensions of products as well as a clear methodology of display and presentation.
