The inspiration for this innovative design of Mr.Tomaras pharmacy came from its cylindrical floor plan. The central spot catches the eye with the exhibition of the products and the impressive sculpture made of self-luminous elastic membrane which penetrates the floor and ends up to the roof.

The pharmacy is segmented into different areas based on the products being sold, the desired shopping experience and the brand positioning. The purpose of the categorization of areas was to facilitate the identification of products, thus making it easier for the customer to shop independently if desired.
The materials mostly used are reclaimed wood surfaces painted with ecological water based lacquer, the wall paint is also ECO certified, the illumination is low consumption t5 and led bulbs, part of the energy consumption is provided by solar panels on the roof and finally there is a small water filtering device so the grey water can irrigate the surrounding garden.
Nostalgia for authenticity, for the past that is all around us – this holds true for the foreign tourist more than anyone. The logo is inspired by the family’s ancient crests and by the aged wood panels that share the space with the yellow LED lighting, by the copper strongboxes with their centuries-old coats of arms. An old iron cabinet serves as the backdrop for creating window displays.
In the absence of external references, it was chosen to create a building with an abstract and neutral character, reinforced by the absence of openings. With oval shape footprint, the two floors are fully aluminium coated corrugated and perforated. The only direct opening to the outside is the main entrance that gives access to the sales area.
The creators followed the latest trends constructing this 150m2 pharmacy without using any built in pillars but a large glass entrance on the side. The modular right wall units dominate the entire inner space harmonizing with the ceiling and the bright pearly marble flooring with precious green onyx inlays.
