Sadly overcrowded with plastic junk and generic products, this marvellous drugstore is nonetheless a beautiful example of how simple wood carpentry can enhance and give scale to a space. Not to mention heaps of charm! The stair at the end is the acme of understated, vernacular elegance. Note how the shelves are held in place with the traditional “seesaw” supports inside, and not the cheap pin and hole system of today.
