A dispensing pharmacy built on the roadside in Suzuka, Mie Prefecture. In suburb where cars are popular in daily use, many shops stand in a row on a national road rather than in front of the station, a unique road sight that car parks line along the road and the wall surface of buildings are secluded from the road can be frequently seen.
Remaining such location design of buildings as it is, which is also common for convenience stores, the dispensing pharmacy is designed in a manner which can change the sight made by the building and the car park and can be used for an open square for local residents.
Flower patterns painted on the floor can control the traffic in the building site such as parking position and pavement and form a gathering space for local residents and a play space for children, and inside the building they also assist in guiding the flow line of customers and the operation of staff.Location: Suzuka, Japan Architect: Spacespace Structure: steel
