Upper East Chemists is a family-owned drug store and purveyor of natural health products. The elegant yet hip design, tailored for its established Upper East Side neighborhood, uses a zoned approach to organize the space and the products within it. A central white zone leads customers from the entrance to the pharmacy counter past a central, fully white gondola shelving housing popular over the counter products.

Wood details encircle the entrance and side shelving areas and seamlessly transition from oak on the ceiling and walls to wood-look porcelain floor tile. Globe lighting fixtures provide presence without blocking views. The glass storefront allows the store’s branding to be visible from the exterior.
