Pharmacy at Levallois-Perret, Paris.

On first impression a pharmacy must give a sense of healing. Psychologically, it is the destination of a journey to receive the magic substance which will transform illness into health. Hence, the pharmacy counter might be seen as an altar where a relief from pain is dispensed.

For the pharmacist however, this complex ritual unfolds as the everyday experience of work and human contact. Service, accessibility, professional advice and medical science are all aspects of the pharmacist's work that must find expression here in the architectural ambiance of the place.
