Brown and Storey Architects
TORONTO, ON, February 2, 2002 — Giant Step has unveiled a new and improved web site for Brown + Storey Architects – www.brownandstorey.com – with the primary goal of presenting the architect firm’s design projects online.
Brown + Storey Architects (B+SA) is a multidisciplinary team of architects, whose work is known to cross boundaries between architecture, urban and landscape design. B+SA’s work has gained attention for many projects including the revitalization of St. George and Bloor street, as well as the recent completion of Yonge/Dundas Square.
With years of local and international design experience, Brown + Storey Architects have built a large body of work and needed a system to present their projects online. In collaboration with Giant Step, a Toronto-based interactive marketing agency, the firm’s website was expanded to include a central rolling image gallery for an immersive exploration of each design project. The gallery is unique in that it features three images sizes, allowing viewers to browse through projects and get a good feel for the work. Visitors are presented with large, clear images of the designs, construction, and the buildings in use.
For the street revitalization projects, interactive maps allow visitors to travel virtually through the street and highlight interesting elements of the design. A custom content management system (CMS) makes it easy to update the site.
Currently eight projects are exhibited on the website, including Young/Dundas Square, Downsview Park, as well as Bloor, College and St. George Street Transformations.
