We were approached to design a cutting-edge cannabis dispensary in Santa Barbara’s central commercial district that offers guests a welcoming, relaxed retail experience. Our design features a generous lounge adjacent to the retail area that encourages guests to commune and hang out at their leisure.

The brand offers product for play, wellness and health and it can be purchased by exploring the shop independently, working directly with an employee, or by placing an order at the kiosk. A digital resource enables new users to build a profile based on their likes and dislikes, which aids them in identifying the best product for their use.

The back of house office spaces have a communal feel, featuring a clean, industrial aesthetic. Our design calls for removal of the ceiling lid to expose the existing bow truss structural system, which will flood the area with natural light. Unique design features include custom-designed casework, a living wall and photography by a local artist.
