Responsive Website

Ben Giles Architecture

Ben Giles is a successful residential architect from Sydney, Australia building contemporary dwellings that take into account the client as well as the natural environment.

After inspecting his current portfolio website I felt like the site didn't do his great skill as an architect  justice. As a little side project I created a new concept for the desktop site, which could easily be translated into a mobile version. Since this was an unsolicited redesign of the architect's current site, there were no requirements from the client, but my design relied on my own assessment of the existing site. I further improved his current web presence by making the site responsive, highlighting the architect's professional qualifications and memberships, better showcasing portfolio projects and adding an additional way of contacting him via a short contact form.

The final site was built using the Webflow CMS. Here I made some minor visual design changes to improve the overall layout and added subtle animations to the landing page. For an architect it is important to present projects of previous clients effectively, making them a main focus throughout the site, while at the same time providing enough information that lets potential clients and home builders get a feel for the person who is behind the work. This has been achieved with this website project.
