osaka-based architecture practice SPACESPACE has completed ‘isoyama dispensing pharmacy’,
a single-storey building in suzuka-shi, mie, japan. situated in a suburb populated by cars, the design
utilizes a large parking space in front of the structure as a multifunctional square for the local residents.

generously stepped back from the street line, the dispensing pharmacy is conceived as a pavilion-like
structure with a transparent glass face. a series of slim pillars provide support for an extended roof slab
while maintaining undisrupted sight lines to the activities within. the service area of the facility is located
in the front while functional programs line the back wall of the floor plan. the result is an intuitive layout
that ensures an efficient operation for both the users and the workers.

the design utilizes a floral motif throughout, from the column form to the pavement patterns outside.
in addition to signalling parking positions, the overlays are used in the interior as guides that direct
the flow of customers.


Is this what shoppers want?
