About Their Business

Design Studio Architects (DSA) are award-winning sustainability focused architects based in Leicester city centre. They are a RIBA chartered practice and handle both domestic and commercial projects.

The Creative Challenge

DSA wanted to update their website to better focus on their high-end residential new builds and commercial architecture projects. They also wanted to emphasise further their usage of virtual reality and their efforts towards sustainability. Overall aiming for something more slick and modern.

It was also important to make it easy to update and maintain in-house, such as adding new projects, new team members, new blog content, and so on. The new website process included; research, a sitemap, low-fidelity wireframes, high-fidelity wireframes, and development.

The Creative Process

Research

We went through DSA’s old website to see specifically what they didn’t like about it. Plus, collected loads of websites to serve as inspiration, alongside the competitions – to ensure we could stand out.

DSA Case Study Web Design

Designing

After research, we agreed upon a sitemap. Basically which pages we should have, where they’ll be and how they all fit together. Afterward we started on the wireframes. Deciding on the overall structure of the pages, what type of content there will be on each, what order the content will be in, etc. Then finally how it will look once all the styling has been applied.

Results

In the end, we believe to have developed a modern website that fits DSA’s needs. Implementing and highlighting their efforts towards sustainability and virtual reality. Also adding filterable projects that are easily updated, subtle animations, and an ownable style.
