Columbia Care approached design and manufacturing consultancy RPG to develop the first medical marijuana dispensary in NYC. As a designer on this team, for me it meant balancing the sensitive nature of the product with the space’s ease of use and security. By learning about the customers and their range of needs we were able to develop a practical yet attractive space for learning, consulting, and selling.
The look and feel of the space was designed to transition to a more casual space in the event of loosened laws on the controlled substance.
Key communication and graphic areas convey information, with the ability to transform into consultation or merchandising spaces when needed.
