Set up in 1954 Costigan’s Pharmacies have been serving their local community in Tipperary for generations, it was paramount that the overall aesthetic & attitude within this interior paid homage to the wealth of knowledge & care provided by the Costigan family for over 60 years.

How does the interior design & fit-out respond to this? Old world apothecary style elements are accentuated with a black walnut cash desk complemented by brass & ribbed glass privacy screens. It’s all about putting the customer at ease with both private & semi private consultation spaces available. The dispensary, the central focus of the interior, is styled uniquely with an old worldly style window providing views to all areas of the store. The brief outlined the importance of the pharmacist’s connection, at all times, to the patients no matter where they are.

The tones are soft & welcoming with lighting that is warm & focused. The carefully selected materials are mixture of natural & textured. The joinery details are chunky & engaging inviting people to connect with them & staff alike

The general retail & waiting area is understated & considered with deep tones that tap into the heritage of the Costigan’s brand. This design is forging a new path in pharmacy retail & design. It’s a pharmacy that is all about honest professional healthcare. The aim with this fit out it is to provide a place of sanctuary. For too long pharmacies have been dominated by a cosmetic retail focused agenda, Costigan’s is a step away from that model & a return to the patient centric focus of pharmacies of previous generations.
