Kontexture was established in 2013 by Daniel Istrate and Jorge Toscano. Kontexture is derived from the marriage of context and architecture which is what drives the design philosophy of the studio." To start, Kontexture's primary focus was residential architecture; however, as the firm scaled in size and experience, a diversity of commercial projects entered the fold. Now, Kontexture handles both residential and commercial architecture. Their work is sleek, sharp, and exudes modernity.
With this in the front of our minds, we had an exact idea of the style that we wanted to utilize for this website. We opted for a minimalist design that integrates many sharp edges and lines, On top of this, we chose to use Helvetica Neue for all of the text on the website, as it is both modern and timeless. For the headings, we selected for a bold font weight, while all body text was set to a light weight. To capture the futuristic air of Kontexture's style, we created a floating scroll tracker that we fixed to the right side of the screen. On top of this, we incorporated design elements and interactions that we have not used before. This includes a "reveal on hover" interaction for the projects contained within the Portfolio page of the site. Our final steps included designing custom animations tailored to creating a cutting-edge, innovative feel.
As always, the site was built using Webflow. This was the platform of choice as it offers premium security, scalability, and ease of management for clients (post-launch). It was truly a pleasure getting to collaborate with the team at Kontexture, as they are vivacious, kind-hearted, and talented, which makes for a great partnership.
