Community Healthcare Hub

I envisioned creating a free community healthcare hub prototype for making medical services accessible to all. The open-air ground floor maximizes permeability and airflow for the drug dispensary system. As an extension to the original pharmacy, local services can be preserved and drug pickup is conducted in a continuous circular experience. Rooms on the second floor provide virtual doctor counseling for maximized efficiency. Drugs manufactured and stocked in households face a large surplus. Thus through organized donations, the system could strategically provide the underprivileged with free medicine in excess. Reckoning the idea of a community fridge, it is a community medicine cabinet that serves the unwell and heals the imbalanced community. The free drug dispensary aims to satisfy the needs of diverse conditions and expedite the medicine transfer process. Opening on both sides, matte doors facing the interior offer privacy for drug pickers, and transparent doors facing the street allow drug donors to quickly identify and drop off their medicine.
