Architect Portfolio (2007)
Scott Bella and Serhat Akiska are prominent architects in Glen Rock, NJ, known widely for their expertise in zoning issues.
As designers themselves, their website needed to reflect their aesthetic philosophy. Their ideals appealed to us, but presented the practical challenge of adequately showing a great volume of information within the constraints of a tight, understated frame.
Initially skeptical, Web Developers Studio came up with several creative design solutions.
We chose an accordion-style photo gallery to display their beautiful portfolio concisely and elegantly. A dynamic fade-out scrolling technique fits the partners' longer biographies compactly within the square. Finally, their contact information, contact form, and Google map are neatly gathered into a single logistics page.
This website, designed in 2007 and still striking and stylish today, attests to the success of the collaborative effort.
