Hill Country Apothecary

Hill Country Apothecary is a compounding pharmacy in Lakeway, TX. It features a central compounding lab which is glazed to allow for viewing of prescriptions as they are crafted by hand on-site. The lab is articulated as a discrete volume within the space. Indoor air and light quality were designed to take advantage of simple, sustainable and natural materials and geometries resulting in clean spaces to serve and be served in.

The Apothecary includes a full-service retail pharmacy with products displayed on the steel, aluminum, and poplar wood supergraphic shelf that runs the full height and length of the glass storefront. The supergraphic combines the pharmacy's needs for clear and bold branding as well as ease of access to the products on display while modulating the daylight that enters the space. Cost-effective, locally-sourced, and familiar Durcon counter tops are installed throughout - the same material found in school laboratories and science classrooms across the country. Materiality and form are carefully composed to create an uplifting and efficient workplace for daily pharmacy functions that are transparent to customers.
