I love this very cool pharmacy! Farmacia Lordelo in Vila Real, Portugal, was designed by Portuguese architect José Carlos Cruz. The oval shaped, corrugated aluminum-clad two-story building contains both the store and pharmaceutical labs. Keeping the exterior neutral and emphasizing its neutrality with an absence of openings — the only opening being the main entrance — Cruz played with the internationally recognizable green cross pharmacy symbol in neon green as the dynamic decorative element. The interior has a sanitary yet contemporary feel, all in white with curving walls. Outside and in: pretty fabulous.

If you like this pharmacy you’d probably like this one too.
