With such features as operable windows, reclaimed red oak flooring, and low-VOC finishes, this space embodies the brand identity of natural, time-honored techniques while the historic building preservation honors the store‘s roots as an apothecary since 1851. Built to LEED Gold standards, the project involved coordination between retail, architect, and MEP teams even before design development.

Consuming 30 percent less water than code requirements and 20 percent more energy-efficient than code, the store features all Energy Star appliances, 90 percent LED lighting, an additional cavity wall for insulation, vacancy sensors, double-glazed argon-filled window units, and shared-condenser, variable-speed, on-demand AC units. Materials include reclaimed metal ceiling tiles, recycled rubber flooring, and Sustainable Assessment Floor-certified linoleum.
