The architecture and interior were designed by José Carlos Cruz – Arquitecto, who risked on a modern look, taking advantage of the fact that the area does not have strict building style restrictions.

Farmácia Lordelo is not only a compounding pharmacy but also a laboratory, which is one of the reasons the designers toned everything down and kept the interior airy, white and minimal, as the intention was to look a bit sterile and clinical as well.
