The challenge

The Building in Context Toolkit is an initative developed by English Heritage, the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment and the Kent Architecture Centre to help enhance new development proposals. Their old website was in need of a makeover, and the key goals for a new website were to modernise their initiative’s image, to better communicate their message and to be able to easily update their website content in house.

How we helped

We designed and built a bespoke WordPress website for Building in Context, building-in-context.org, that has a light, bright, vibrant colour scheme and a visual look and feel that blends authority with approachability. Key content that used to hidden away in long text areas in their old website was given a more visible and engaging platform in the form of page introductions that overlay the main image for each site.

Page introductions give key content a more visible and engaging platform.

We incorporated more images and photos into the design in order to better engage with their visitors, communicate their message and showcase the projects they’ve been involved with. All the content, including all the images and text, can easily be updated by the client through a customised WordPress backend.

What they said

“We were looking for a fresh approach to the Building in Context website. 6-2 design responded to that challenge, but also recognised the importance of maintaining the knowledge base on the site. Easy to use and navigate, response to the re-launched site is positive. Excellent customer service, with clear communication at all times.”
