Dispensary Concept – The Hive

Warm, welcoming dispensary space with a modern geometric vibe.

The concept behind The Hive grew from the use of hexagon shape, a nod to the THC molecule, which is incorporated in a variety of ways throughout the physical space as well as in branding and marketing materials to strengthen the brand identity. The Hive will create a buzz as the space teems with activity from local community members and patients, a hub for education and awareness around the cannabis plant and its many benefits.

In the dispensary, custom designed display cases reflect the shape of the hexagonal wall partitions, which allow for visual connection between different parts of the space. A layer of opaque gold paneling is added to the interior of the hexagonal wall in the Vault, creating a backlit glow and offering a glimpse into the activity happening within while still maintaining security. A warm palette of bronzes, wood tones, and gold details pops against the painted black brick accent walls.
