We’ve outlined the most important phases of the website creation process below to help you get started.

1. Start with the why

Before getting into the nitty-gritty details, first you need to identify why you are creating your website:

  • Looking to get hired and you need an architecture portfolio that stands out from the crowd? 
  • Do you want to land freelance work and find new clients?
  • Would you like to build your personal brand?

Keep in mind your audience when you start thinking about the website design.

3. Create the essential pages

Depending on your why, you may want to have an About page, a Contact page, and/or a page for your extracurricular projects.

4. Create your project pages

And last, but definitely not least, come your project pages. These are the most crucial elements of your site.

Let’s see an example of a great project page:

What Frederico did right:

  • Clear portfolio layout,
  • A collage of the finished renders to set the scene,
  • Contextual information at the beginning,
  • Including heaps of images (not just of the end result, but technical drawings as well),
  • Placing their contact information at the bottom of the page.

What could be improved:

  • Placing important information in every image caption to give context,
  • Including 1-2 sentences about the process
    • Did they finish the work under budget?
    • What was the biggest challenge?
    • Was the client happy with the end result?

What Makes a Good Architecture Website? – Our Top 3 Tips

1. Organization

People come to the website for a reason. Make sure that they find what they are looking for. It’s best not to start with an artistic cover page, but rather your projects or project categories laid out in front of your audience.

2. Fast Loading

It’s crucial to have a fast website. It’s simple: if a site loads slowly, people leave instantly.

There are a couple of things that you can do (e.g. compress your images), but loading time is mainly influenced by the code behind it. If you want to make sure that your architecture or interior design website is blazing fast, build it with Archifolio. You just bring your projects and we’ll take care of the coding.

Find a design and fill it up with your projects. It's that easy.

3. Personality

Your website presents you as a professional and therefore, it should reflect your design style as well. So, for example, if you’re creating minimalist building designs, your portfolio should be clear and simple too.

6 Things to Avoid

1. Breaking all the website design rules

You may have seen architecture websites that are all about artistic components, constant animations, and disappearing elements. You may be wowed for a moment or two by the innovation, but if you spend more time on the site, you’ll get lost at some point.

People quickly get frustrated with an over-complicated website. They want to understand how to get where they want to go and the best way to help them is to follow the most common website architecture rules. It’s OK to break them a bit to be unique (e.g. finding a bold color or experimenting with the image size), but don’t go overboard.

2. Hiding the most important information

You know that it’s not a great website if you’re looking for the contact information and you can’t find it. Think about what your audience is interested in and make it easily accessible.

3. Vague or incomprehensible navigation

Use the lingo that your audience speaks. If they are interested in your extracurricular, then don’t just put it on a page that’s titled “other”.

4. Making it look busy

If you make your website look busy with way too much information, people won’t understand half of what you’re trying to say. Rather, aim to keep it short and to the point.

5. Poor quality images

Pixelated images can make the whole website look sloppy. Pay attention to the quality of the image when compressing it.

Building your website with Archifolio will not only mean that you have unlimited storage for your projects. We automatically convert your images into a website-friendly file type, which guarantees that your images will look sharp, without slowing your site.

6. Unreadable fonts

We get that some architects try to be artsy with their choice of fonts, however, in many cases, they end up with a fancy-looking font that misses one important aspect: readability. Find a legible font, and make sure to choose the right font size.

So, there you have it. We hope that you got enough inspiration from the examples to start working on your architecture website. If you’re itching to start right away, give Archifolio a go. Sign up, choose a portfolio template to start, and create something unique!
