Lydaki Nitsa Pharmacy by Lefteris Tsikandilakis, Heraklion – Greece

July 10th, 2015 by retail design blog

The design entails the renovation and reform of a pharmacy with a loft in the Alikarnasso district of Heraklion, Crete.


The aim is to create a new approach to the use of the pharmacy space which is based on the direct collaboration with the client in order to make full use of the special characteristics and needs of this particular space by combining the cozy atmosphere with the best ergonomics and functionality. Near the entrance of the pharmacy is the section of promotion and presentation of the products and at the back of the space is a closed well-organized laboratory for preparing drugs.


Significant emphasis has been put on the construction details as well as the character of the special features of the space such as the staisr, the loft, the graphics etc, which fill in and complete the study. The distinct sculptural style of the stairs in combination with the graphics which were exclusively studied for this particular space, enhance and combine aesthetically and dynamically the groundfloor with the loft.


Materials are used such as wood, glass, inox etc. On the thematic window in the store there is indirect hidden lighting which discretely illuminates the products, thus highlighting them. The close collaboration with the client secured the distinct aesthetic result thus creating a personal space, since it represents the wishes and character of the pharmacy and therefore in line with the innovative and contemporary design approach of the architectural office.
