DaSilva Architects

Site Design by Kris Angell, DaSilva Architects

DaSilva Architects is a small, New York-based firm with practices in healthcare, education, residential and commercial facility planning.

Having designed a new site, DaSilva's marketing team asked Progressive to build it out.

In web development, the hand-off from design to production requires close collaboration. Technical constraints and artistic vision often need to be reconciled. Progressive prides itself on bridging the gap, and in our work with DaSilva, we did just that.

DaSilva initially wanted a fixed-height website. It worked for the homepage, which features a rotating display of their best work...
...But most of the interior pages would include content that extended well beyond the height limit...
...So they designed in a non-standard scrolling mechanism. We advised against it: there was no guarantee it would work for 100% of their users...
...Why risk losing even one potential client? DaSilva agreed...
...We went forward with a fixed-height homepage, and non-fixed, fluid-height interior pages. We think everyone came out ahead.
