Website development / Website design

BACKGROUND

Rio Architects is an award-winning architectural firm responsible for designing some of Wales’ most iconic new buildings, including the Royal Mint Experience and One Central Square, as well as projects throughout the UK and as far afield as Moscow and Madrid.

The Brief

Rio wanted a new website that would not only showcase the range of experience and expertise within their team but also position them as an organisation working on a local, national and international stage.

BUILDING A STRONG ONLINE PRESENCE

Rio’s existing website no longer reflected the vibrancy of their brand or the innovative scope of their projects.

It was text-heavy with few visual examples of their work and, because it wasn’t built using responsive website design, couldn’t be viewed properly on mobile devices.

Rio wanted a site that offered an improved user experience with clearer navigation and the opportunity for visitors to access up-to-date information about the business, industry trends and their latest projects.

A DYNAMIC FIRST IMPRESSION

The homepage of the new website features a video highlighting some of Rio’s most recent projects.

Visitors are encouraged to click through and explore some of their latest case studies, as well as the latest news from their blog page.

The Work page allows people to search through examples of Rio’s projects based on industry sector, location and a project’s status, whether it’s at the planning stage, under construction or completed.

Individual case studies provide further information about the project as well as images of the designs and completed building.

A skilleD team of experts

It was also important to put the Rio team at the forefront of the website.

The team page shows the full complement of experienced professionals on offer.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE ON ANY DEVICE

The new-look Rio Architects website was the perfect opportunity for the organisation to introduce the philosophy and culture behind the business while showcasing the best of their award-winning work and sharing the latest architectural trends and innovations.

The ability to offer this seamlessly and consistently across any device was vital.

The new website design not only allows visitors to view the site from a smartphone, tablet or desktop device but also means that Rio staff can edit and manage the website through its responsive CMS on any device.

CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE

"We are delighted with our perfectly-tailored website and receiving extremely positive responses from the marketplace. It ticks all the boxes, enabling us to showcase our forward-thinking, dynamic and innovative approach to architecture."
