The client

Karakusevic Carson Architects are an award winning practice which focuses on urban regeneration and housing architecture across London and the UK. Their main inspiration is to reignite standards in social housing in areas which have previously been neglected.

The brief

Karakusevic Carson Architects are cutting edge in the way they approach their project work and were looking for a new identity and website which reflected this status. During this project Core worked in partnership with creative agency Peter and Paul, who provided expertise in identity and positioning, to develop a functional yet design led site, with clear scope for a flexible content strategy.

The response

With a creative client such as this, it is important that they understand we have the focus on design that they do and that they feel comfortable with our processes in developing the site.

A flexible content management system was vital as Peter & Paul and Karakusevic Carson Architects wanted to move away from the classic heavily templated page format they had previously experienced. Their wish was to be able to use their content how they wanted and not to feel restrained by technology. This mindset fits in perfectly with our own sense of bespoke and presented us with exciting challenges in which to develop.

In tune with the rebranding work, the site looked to reflect Karakusevic Carson Architects desire to tell the stories behind their projects. This required a bespoke functionality to the site whereby images and text can be used on an ad hoc basis and allow the story to flow naturally. The site has a crisp and cool aesthetic to it and its navigation/user experience had to match this. Navigation is clear and slick, while the addition of an efficient faceted search feature on the Work page helps to take that user engagement factor to another level.

What’s so valuable for us as an agency is that we develop and improve with every project and client that we take on. Developing our bespoke CMS service has been a source of great pride for us and this project certainly helped in its development.

In any project, our primary goal is always to serve the needs of our clients and partners and with every project comes new challenges in which to help us do this better.

A key requirement of our brief was a flexible website and CMS that would allow us to break free of rigid templates. Core really delivered on this and we are delighted with the results.
