Woman-owned and financed, this adult use cannabis dispensary in Carmel-by-the-Sea was a mission-driven endeavor by a savvy real estate developer and committed cannabis advocate. As an MS patient, the client understands the health benefits of cannabis and its many therapeutic modalities. She played a crucial role in the education, acceptance and licensing of cannabis in the Monterey Bay area. This passion was continued throughout the design process as The High Road Design Studio worked to create a dispensary that met her high standards for a distinct brand-driven retail experience.
Once an office space, this 4,000-sq.ft property had the right corner location and architectural elements to transition it into a visible and accessible retail destination. The client understood her market demographics and target audience well, and she was committed to first and foremost serving women. She wanted a sophisticated retail space that offered an educational environment with exceedingly friendly customer service. Her journey with MS as well as her sensitivity to an aging population made accessibility a priority throughout the design process—she was very conscientious that displays, fixtures and surfaces were comfortable and easy to experience for a person in a wheelchair.
