City & Home
responsive portfolio and search tool for a real estate agency
City & Home is one of Berlin’s major high-end real estate developers. Together with design studio Berliner Süden, I designed a responsive portfolio and search tool to make it easy for City & Home’s clients to find and explore projects.
With the property search experience as a core focus, I developed a concept for City & Home’s real estate search interface and website components. Using paper prototypes, our team was able to quickly iterate ideas while adding more visual elements to the wireframes. Once our main questions about the properties search process were answered, we added the other modules to the landing page and continued designing the subpages including the properties profile page, project page, company profile, blog and contact.
The main idea for the website's visual design was to bring the properties picture to the forefront. For the various components of the website, we complemented the pictures with plain coloured layers and a sans serif typeface to communicate an elegant and modern visual identity.
