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.
This amazing home in Austin is a perfect showcase for imaginative architecture. Instead of doing the usual—letting the house fill the 50 by 150-foot single-family lot—the architects designed the residence to stretch along the length of the land. This allowed for a mix of different outdoor spaces that could be natural extensions off of individual rooms.
This home is perched on a gentle hill and offers beautiful vantage points of mountains and rolling landscapes. A walkway meanders its way between garden beds and planters from the street to the front door.
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.
Though defined by clean lines and a sleek island, this modern kitchen feels warm and welcoming thanks to its rich wood ceilings. Recessed lighting illuminates the space for easy meal-prep, while cabinets in the back provide plenty of storage.
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
The indoor spaces of this home are designed to optimize the daylight from the outdoors. Large windows all around the space, as well as windows in the upper wall, bring in plenty of natural light and minimize the need to ever use artificial light during the day.
A dining bridge connects the common and private wings of this modern home. From the interior of the dining space, guests and homeowners have a beautiful view of the pool and outdoor entertaining space to enjoy while they eat.
