Interior Design Magazine: “Trending: 5 Marijuana Dispensaries Tap Into High Design”

RPG is featured in a March 2, article in Interior Design Magazine, entitled, “Trending: 5 Marijuana Dispensaries Tap Into High Design.” The article focuses on new legal marijuana dispensaries wherein, according to the article, “great design continues to shape human thinking and experience.”

It goes on to describe five projects where, “designers are bringing a long stigmatized business into the design fold, often with reclaimed wood, industrial lighting, and natural stone (no pun intended).”

About RPG’s project, the Columbia Care dispensaries, designed in concert with Bruce Hampton — representing 10 locations, the first launching this year in New York City — the article says the following:

“New York-based design and build firm RPG created a branded experience for 10 medical marijuana dispensaries; here, the very first flagship was unveiled in New York in January. Wood, marble, bronze, and white solid surfacing are meant to appeal to patients, pharmacists, and consultants alike by creating a contemporary, comfortable environment firmly grounded in healthcare. The space creates a new face for medical marijuana thanks to soft lighting, modern seating vignettes, and large-format photography meant to educate patients on the wellness properties of various cannabis plants. Additional videos and tablets for each patient endeavor to offer the highest standards of professionalism.”
