LF Development | Homes as Art
LF Development LLC is one of the largest self-performing developers in South Florida capable of a vast array of construction scopes. We were asked to construct a new site to showcase their current and past projects using galleries and integrated maps, in a modern, mobile-friendly experience. As Laszlo prefers to work purely by word of mouth and keep a low profile, intensive on-site SEO and blogging were not desired.
Lazslo wanted to showcase his past and current work in a clean and simple way that would reflect his luxurious, modern and minimalist style.
He came to us with his home page design already in mind and a desire to display his projects on the front page via a “gallery experience.”
The other requirements were to showcase each of his projects by location area, to be able to differentiate between projects that were under construction from those that have been completed and to make future changes and updates to projects simple to implement.
- Custom Home Page | Custom designed home page creates the experience of viewing LF Development’s project as if in an art gallery.
- Custom Google Map | Customized interactive Google Map of all LFDevelopment’s projects allows users to easily navigate and view homes by status, region or specific location. The custom google map and individual project pages are cross-linked, to create a seamless browsing experience.
- Custom Post Types |Chris created custom post types for the projects, making creating and updating project pages seamless. By linking the custom post type fields with Google Maps, users are able to browse individual regions right from the clean menu navigation or view them all on the main project map. Project status are indicated via color coded map pins.
- Custom Project Galleries |Each project has its own interactive photo-gallery showcasing images from the entire lifespan of the projects (from rendering to final product), with full-screen capabilities to capture every magnificent detail is captured.
Other custom project features:
- Custom mobile-friendly child-theme built on the Genesis theme by Studiopress.
- A beautifully simple site that uses minimal navigational clutter while providing maximum viewing experience.
- Easy project browsing through thumbnails and location by utilizing Google Maps API integration.
- Responsive layout and design that brings the same bold experience to every device type.
- Custom post types for projects with customized google maps integration
- Ongoing maintenance, support and content updates.
- Google Analytics integration + Webmaster Tools verification.
“I am very happy with the results. Chris and Shayna are very professional and took all my considerations in account.”
“I was initially concerned that follow-through would be lacking and the web-site design would look too “cookie-cutter” and lack a wow factor. Since my website has launched, I’ve received many, many compliments. Most people are surprised at the projects I’ve been involved with and the personal statements on the web-site about my company and myself.
[What I liked the most about working with Cultivar Designs was] the professional and timely follow-through at every level.
You’ve been able to quickly update information on my website when I needed it and have resolved layout issues expeditiously.
The Dropbox with the shared folders made it an efficient process. You sent progress emails as things progressed which have me the piece of kind things were moving right along.
I would (and have) recommended your company to anyone looking for an amazing web-site and great customer service.”
