James Gorst Architects have been working on world-wide projects for over 30 years. In addition to producing some of the largest new residences in the United Kingdom, they have also worked on the refurbishment of The Royal Exchange in London and the construction of a new Orthodox chapel on the island of Mykonos, Greece.
In 2021, Tom Green created a new identity for the company, including a logo, identity guidelines and stationery. He also created web designs to compliment the new identity – a feeling of space and form without being literal or heavy handed.
The website has an unorthodox gateway: the splash page shows a client quotation which the client can edit or disable. It also shows the logo which smoothly transitions to a similar word mark; this provides the entrance to Projects and Practice, the two sections of the site.
The resulting website is very refined, with their logo and stunning photography at the forefront, and text very much taking a back seat.
