Jean Coutu Pharmacy, Montreal, by Groupe Chagall Design_01 The Jean Coutu pharmacy, designed by Quebec-based Groupe Chagall Design, is situated in downtown Montreal. The store features walls covered in waves, light flowing down from the ceiling, and large, stream-like structures adorning the ceiling—all elements created by Chagall’s designers and artists to complement the space’s over-arching water concept.
