The Farmacia de los Austrias (De los Austrias Chemist) by Spanish architecture and design studio Stone Designs, is placed in one of the most emblematic areas of historical Madrid.
The initial idea was to create a new space typology, in which tradition and vanguard merge in such a subtle way that originate a slow and deliberate dialogue in which no element stands out of the rest, creating an almost musical harmony.
Products are displayed in really thin metallic structures standing in the bluish walls, creating a sweet and warm chromatic range that makes us feel at ease. This space transmits that we are attended by real professionals, but with a more human touch than usual.
Some details such as the white marble counter help to strengthen the concept of the “well down job” that oozes the old; while other materials like the tiled floor, embrace us in a warm and close atmosphere.
It is a project in which, due to its nature and small size, even the slightest detail has been taken care of, creating an enormous sensory universe that makes the visitor enjoy a most gratifying experience.
