Aurora Project’s lighting team coordinated with McKesson to formulate a design guide that ensures continuity throughout the McKesson estate. The focus was to revitalise the look and feel of the stores, whilst still maintaining a brand and style consumers were familiar with.
The first site in Sweden acted as an initial trial for McKesson’s larger rollout and Aurora, their long term lighting partner, was pleased to be involved in the very first installation and the wider scale design development. Most pharmacies are destination stores where the customers arrive with specific needs. This allowed us to place a strong emphasis on wayfinding and light levels. The lighting design had to ensure that the right balance between practical considerations and visual aesthetics were met, whilst showcasing the products in store clearly.
