Simple and elegant presentations, paired with well-executed projects, inspire and impress potential clients. We’ve rounded up the top 7 best architecture websites showcasing exemplary work and well thought-out interfaces.

Collected from countries all over the world, these websites exhibit industry-forward illustrations and top-tier design concepts, all at the forefront of architecture. Read on to dive deep and draw your own inspiration from these websites for your next project.

7. Archi-Graphi

Archi-Graphi

Archi-Graphi is focused on both architectural developments as well as the overall communication process involved in their projects.

Their website includes interactive scrolling animations and high-quality images of their projects against a stark, monochromatic background, for a dramatic, high- contrast flair. The result is minimal, yet sleek and sophisticated.

6. Kilograph

Kilograph

Although it’s not a bona-fide architecture firm – we felt the need to include this Los Angeles based full-service creative agency because of the unique niche it has carved out in the architectural world. Kilograph’s services span across a wide digital spectrum, from marketing all the way to AR/VR rendering, which support new architectural development projects with a unique opportunity for storytelling. In short, Kilograph utilizes innovative technologies to help architecture and design companies realize their vision and get their message out.

Kilograph’s website really shines in its use of full-width hero videos (which are extremely eye catching), clean layout and typography, and the use of gifs to animate it’s thumbnail pics. For an agency that positions itself as a digital guru with animation and branding services, it certainly promotes itself well.

With a body of work that speaks for itself, SOM’s website is extremely adept at showcasing the firm’s broad wealth of experience. With a simple grid layout that features a small thumbnail image with the name and location of the project, it only takes a glimpse to see that this agency has worked on a multitude of cutting-edge projects all over the world.

4. MAFCOHouse

As stated on their homepage, MAFCOhouse believes that great homes begin with great relationships. This Canadian-based architecture firm is creating modern, environmentally-conscious homes with Dan and Diane Molenaar leading the forefront of their design operation.

3. Olson Kundig

Olson Kundig

Olson Kundig is a design studio that has seemingly mastered the fusion of sleek, modern design with natural landscapes. A majority of the studio’s projects feature a skilled application of natural elements, such as wood and stone, with open concept designs and kinetic elements that celebrate the human scale and touch. 

The design of the firm’s website mimics this aesthetic- with large, full-width images that fill the screen and highlight the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Parallax elements and subtle, seamless animated transitions add a smooth yet subtle touch of sophistication to this site. The end result is a balanced and informative aesthetic reminiscent of their architectural designs.

Basing their design principles off of flexibility, practicality, durability and smart technology, Ark Shelter reconnects clients to nature and with one another. 

Aside from reinventing modern escapes, Ark Shelter also successfully manifests its vision through its modern, sharply-designed website. A hero video sits behind the header menu, enveloping you in the Ark Shelter experience. Clean, straight-forward browsing makes it simple to navigate throughout their pages without the bulk and frills. Just like Ark Shelter housing, their website is delivering the information you need through a beautiful and minimal design.
