The design of the storefront for this apothecary is all about lifestyle, mixing a contemporary look with an old-world service culture. Prescriptions are hand crafted on-site where a clean discrete box allow patrons to view their medications being created, and fresh drinks are served by an in-store juice bar. Air and light quality were designed to take advantage of simple, sustainable and natural materials result in clean spaces to serve and be served in. The branding, clear and bold, was integrated into an architectural element-a supergraphic shelf-which revitalized the strip mall storefront. Comfortable and uplifting, unlike typical pharmacies, this multi-functional space serves up a dose of handcrafted goods with a modern style.

The re-branding of Hill Country Apothecary, clear and bold, was integrated into an architectural element-the super-graphic shelf-revitalized the strip mall storefront. Comfortable and uplifting unlike typical pharmacies, this multi-function space serves up a dose of handcrafted goods with modern style, enjoyed by the community of Lakeway, a small town on Lake Travis outside of Austin.
Hill Country Apothecary's goal was to create a public gathering space both for the shopping center it's located in as well as for its customers, so designers created sitting areas throughout the space so that patrons can comfortably enjoy a drink or a good conversation. To complement the stylish seating areas, MF Architecture redesigned the logo for Hill Country Apothecary and added it to the interior walls to offset the minimal palette of poplar wood and neutral colors.
