Completion Date

December 2021

A well-established pharmacy business in the small town of Franklinton, Louisiana was looking to upgrade its facility with a striking new 5400 sf building. Despite being designed within a modest budget and utilizing an economic material palette, the new building is eye-catching and inviting to passersby. The facility incorporates several supporting functions which provide a harmony of wellness services for its small community. These include a coffee shop, a small wellness clinic, specialized clean rooms for compounding and IV infusion prep, a “closed door” pharmacy that serves long-term care facilities, and a retail pharmacy with over-the-counter and prescription medications. These spaces are all contained within a clear-span space created with exposed wood pre-engineered trusses. Clearstory windows provide an abundance of filtered natural light for its occupants. The building has become a landmark within its community.
