Located on Clearwater Beach, Walgreens boasts an exciting and new shopping experience for its customers. Due in part to a unique design, Walgreens combines modern architectural elements using cantilevered, aluminum, louvered sunshades provided by Awning Works Inc. With the help of J. Kokolakis Contracting, Inc., Awning Works designed a creative solution through the louvered sunshades to help maximize energy efficiency in the winter and filter the intense heat and glare in the summer.
A Bold New Look for Your Neighborhood Drugstore
As with all Awning Works Inc. projects, the sunshades offer an artistic aspect with fantastic light patterns which work as decorative elements and integrate natural light into the building. Aluminum louvered sunshades are available in a variety of louver blade designs and perimeter profiles that can be finished in powder coats to match or contrast a building’s exterior design making them a perfect choice for commercial buildings as well as residential homes.
Located in the prime real estate area of the Clearwater Beach roundabout, the new 2-story Walgreens is beautifully lit after sundown and has opened its doors to new ways of enhancing the customer experience. The next time you make your way to Clearwater Beach, circle the roundabout and check out the new drugstore. It certainly holds its own next to neighboring businesses like Hooters, Crabby Bill’s and the Ron Jon Surf Shop. It’s a new kind of Walgreens!
