A new site that solves problems

Award-winning projects did not look and were painful to find on the old site. The site did not reflect the companies new direction. It was hard to update and organize project works. AIM decided a revamp with emphasis on improved brand visibility and functionality was required.

Chinese Architecture Website Design

Custom designed every pixel

From sketch, wireframe, to custom design. Our design team created multiple versions with careful attention to every pixel.

Architecture Website Custom Design

Custom coded for speed

The coders took over from designers to give the site optimized code to meet Google speed and GTmetrix score of A. We wanted Google, Bing, Baidu search engines and users happy.

Architecture Website Code Development

Easy to manage back-end

A site should change with the business. We wanted to give AIM control over site updates with a beautiful user-friendly WordPress CMS.

Random structured grids

We made full use of striking large project imagery grids on the homepage to immediately set the tone, and help set AIM apart in a competitive market. Going back to basics we selected a simple timeless classic visual look and UX.

The new face

You've probably been to

We realised that most people in Shanghai have been to at least two of the buildings AIM have designed. SOHO Bund, NIO House Shanghai, etc. With this in mind a text listing of names and simple organized filter would let users easily find a project.

The organized projects list

Mobile not forgotten

Sure its hard to get a fully immersive experience for standard project images on mobile. That still didn't stop us from giving the new site mobile version much-needed love.

The big picture

On desktop we wanted to offer other architects and potential clients a classically simple full project view.

Images lead the way

For those who are more visual we implemented clean project browsing through images.
