flametree artgarden & gallery
Brief// website for a purpose built little art gallery and sculpture garden in Coatesville just north of Auckland. The name derives itself from two large flametrees overlooking the art garden.
The client needed something that featured the continuous activity as exhibiting gallery while also showing other aspects of the establishment.
Solution/ a simple and considered custom-coded website that strongly speaks the identity of Flametree. The centre-piece is a client-managed exhibition database which features the current exhibition on the homepage and relays continuous freshness. The database allows for archiving previous and upcoming exhibitions also. A client-managed news section gives the flexibility to communicate outside of the exhibition context and features news items teasers on the homepage.
The newly founded gallery proved highly successful. In 2013 the business was put on hold for the time being due to family reasons. The website is currently off-line.
