Our team members were tasked with designing a portfolio website for Adrian Hill Architects. The main aim of the site was to put their projects and work to the forefront. The site also needed to work great with minimum written content, with our client wanting their work to do the talking.
When we looked at websites for architects in Dublin and Ireland we found most of them looked very similar with lots of white space. We also wanted lots of space, but to create a more memorable website we developed a neutral colour palette for the website made up of simple greys and greens.
Going for this muted colour palette, meant that it never overshadowed any of the project images. Similarly, created sections with only one or two sentences still looked like they had been given thought and attention.
Architects Portfolio Website
We created a very simple website structure with most information being provided by the home page or individual projects pages. This way the client didn't have to come up with any excess information to fill out extraneous pages: people could get straight to looking at projects and the work Adrian Hill Architects have done.
Another very important factor to help potential users convert on the website was the highly acclaimed quality of our clients work. Adrian Hill Architects are regularly featured in the Irish Times and other publications. To highlight this, we created a simple blog that wouldn't look sparse if it was one or two months since content was last added.
