UX/UI and Web Development for Architecture: Nandez Design Studio Case Study



Nandez Design Studio, a Miami-based architecture studio renowned for its innovative design and construction projects. The studio sought to enhance its digital presence with the same level of creativity and precision applied in its physical projects.

What I Did:


The primary challenge was to translate Nandez Design Studio’s architectural excellence into a digital format that not only showcases their portfolio but also offers an intuitive and engaging user experience. The goal was to create a website that mirrors the studio’s architectural ethos, providing comprehensive architecture information, a clear sitemap for easy navigation, and an interactive user interface that reflects the studio’s innovative designs.

My Approach:

My strategy was to approach the website as an architectural project in its own right, focusing on structure, user flow, and aesthetics. This involved:

  • Deep Diving into Architecture Content: Understanding the essence of the studio’s projects to accurately reflect them online.
  • UX/UI Design: Crafting a user interface that embodies the studio’s design principles, ensuring the website is not only visually appealing but also user-friendly.
  • Sitemap and Information Architecture: Strategically organizing content to ensure users can easily find information, similar to how one might navigate a well-designed building.
  • Web Development: Building the website from the ground up, implementing responsive design principles to ensure accessibility across all devices and platforms.



The comprehensive digital strategy included the following key components:

  • Architecturally Inspired UX/UI Design: The website’s design drew inspiration from Nandez Design Studio’s architectural projects, incorporating elements like clean lines, a cohesive color scheme, and interactive elements that mimic the studio’s design ethos.
  • Intuitive Sitemap: A carefully planned sitemap that guides visitors through the studio’s portfolio, services, and company information, mirroring the thoughtful layout of their architectural projects.
  • Interactive Architecture Information: Detailed pages for each project, incorporating virtual tours, galleries, and project details to engage users and provide in-depth insights into the studio’s capabilities.
  • Responsive Web Development: A fully responsive website ensuring optimal viewing and interaction experience across a wide range of devices, from desktops to mobile phones.


The integration of UX/UI design and web development with a focus on architecture resulted in:

  • A significant boost in online visibility and user engagement, with visitors spending more time exploring the studio’s projects and services.
  • Positive feedback from users on the ease of navigation and the quality of the digital representation of the studio’s work.
  • An increase in inquiries and project leads, attributed to the effective showcase of the studio’s portfolio and the professional presentation of their services.
  • Enhanced brand identity online, closely aligning the studio’s digital presence with its architectural philosophy and design excellence.

This project demonstrated how UX/UI design and web development, when applied with an architectural mindset, can create a digital space that not only showcases an architecture studio's portfolio but also provides a compelling, interactive user experience that reflects the studio's creative and innovative spirit.
