ABOUT OUR DESIGN
In 2010, Pierre and Hany Boutros set out to reimagine Mills Pharmacy.
Their vision was bold: Transform the space from the quaint neighborhood pharmacy it had been for nearly 70 years, to an elegant yet state-of-the-art compounding laboratory and world-class apothecary.
Working with Detroit-based design studio M1/DTW, they brought that vision to life in epic fashion. The build united the existing storefront and adjacent building to create 7,000 square feet of retail, pharmacy and private office space. At once classic and contemporary, the redesigned shop still serves a community of long-standing customers, while enticing discerning shoppers with a premium selection of the world’s finest health and beauty products.
Since its completion, the design has received local praise and national accolades, including “Best Commercial Architecture” and “Best Interior Design” awards from Detroit Home Magazine, and the 2014 “AIA Michigan Honor Award” from the American Institute of Architects.
