May 27, 2009 (CHARLESTON, SC) – Architect Whitney Powers, AIA, principal of Studio A, Inc., in Charleston, South Carolina, recently underscored her commitment to innovative design by launching a new and improved website and news blog at www.studioa-architecture.com. Created by Buff Ross of Alloneword Design in Charleston, Studio A’s revamped site is intended to be more inviting, informative and user-friendly than its previous site and to increase search engine optimization.
Studio A is an award-winning, full-service architecture firm located in downtown Charleston, specializing in contemporary “green” architecture and the preservation or adaptive re-use of historic structures. On the website’s simple, clean home page visitors immediately have access to all of the firm’s areas of expertise via a series of unfolding photographic “hints” that, with a simple click, take the visitor to one of five architectural categories: Residential, Institutional/Commercial, Renovation, Sustainability, and Multi-Family & Affordable Housing. Each category brings up professional photography and descriptions of projects’ program requirements, design solutions, and site considerations.
Another click at the home page “hints” takes visitors to the Firm Profile, which features Studio A’s design philosophy, select sources of inspiration, and credentials (professional certification, honors and awards, etc.).
The Firm Profile also includes a new link to Heritage Strategy Group, a planning initiative headed by Edwin Gardner that recently became a subsidiary of Studio A. HSG’s planning initiatives focus on recreational areas, scenic byways and other public natural or historical resources that allow local businesses and other stakeholders to enjoy growth and prosperity while the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the effected areas are preserved and enhanced.
Other options that kick off from the site’s home page take visitors to Contact information and to the News section. The News section includes media coverage Studio A receives and access to Studio A’s new blog where news from the firm is posted. The News section also provides access to television and video segments featuring the firm’s work.
