Medical Marijuana Pharmacies

New York, Massachusetts, Illinois & California (2016)

Columbia Care was New York State’s first ever medical marijuana pharmacy when it opened in 2016. While addressing the rapidly changing design standards from the Department of Health, Evangeline lead her team to create a contemporary and organic space for this intriguing new building type for public health. She organized and implemented professional standards for the construction drawing sets and specifications for the design team, architect of record, contractors, and client.  Evangeline also provided behind the scenes recommendations for all design aspects of the interiors, including space, lighting, furniture, and finishes for the fixture and branding agency. Her team’s efforts lead to the roll-out of the first seven medical marijuana pharmacies for Columbia Care, with locations in New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and California.
