Embracing the elements through natural materials and the Napa Valley light.

Wade Design

Case Study

Inspired by the natural rhythms that flow from day to night and every moment in between, Wade Design Architects takes an intentional approach to each project. A nationally recognized, full-service architecture firm based in Northern California, Wade focuses on private residences, specialty retail concepts, wineries, and hospitality projects.

Here we created a custom website design and build with a quiet design met with meticulous attention to detail at every step of the build. The team shared their inspired take on the Napa Valley light and its subtle, signature shifts throughout the day. With that inspiration in place, we came up with a concept to geo-locate users when they arrive on the website, showing them photography and a welcome message corresponding to the time of day they are in at their location. The menu transition reflects the sun in the soft circular shape and the subtle color changes within it reflect dawn and dusk. In 2024 the website will be updated to include audio tour guides to each project.

It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with The Beaux Arts team on our website refresh. They immediately understood our vision and goals and brought beautiful and creative solutions to showcase our portfolio and the team behind our projects. The entire process was organized and seamless, from initial design and color palette selections, to training our team to manage the back end of the site, to launch. We are so pleased with the final outcome which is timeless, welcoming and very easy to maintain.
