I have poured many an hour into developing this website. We launched this new site a couple of days ago, and have been waiting to see if it is stable with use from the public. It has not yet been properly index by Google, last time I checked. So some links in Google go to a 404 page, but we have tried to make sure the majority of the links from Google's old listing still direct to the right pages.

This site was designed by my designer colleagues, and was developed mainly by me, but another developer colleague had input on the lazy loading and initial load optimisation etc. The other dev is our server guy, and Head of Digital.

Here are some bugs we are already aware of:
- On slower connections, the slideshow on the home page shows a white screen while the images is still loading, due the lazy load kicking in too late.

Now, before anybody mentions image sizes, the client was insistent we use big images. So that's out of our control. But as an Architect, it's understandable that they'd want to show off their works with high-quality imagery. To counter-act this, we pushed lazy loading to the max. Only loading the bare minimum number of images on initial load so that the site looks good. After that, the images are loaded in either events, or when you scroll down to them.

Please let me know what you think of it! And, of course, if you spot any bugs, or apparent visual glitches, screenshot them and post them here. Thanks in advance.

I will not rebel or stand up against any authority. I will continue consuming endlessly. I will consume even more in a recession that I didn't produce because I'm told I need to get the economy back on track. I will continue to believe everything the media portrays. I will abide and accept all political regulations even though I didn't vote on them. I will continue to work longer hours and accept higher domestic bills. I will continue to be brainwashed by the false needs that advertising presents me. I will not protest in any form. I will continue to accept wars and poverty. I will continue to be governed by a rich minority and will accept corruption. I will continue to believe i cannot make a change. I will continue to suppress true characteristics of myself so that i fit in to this materialistic society. I will not stand up for what i know is right. I will continue to argue that this is just the way it is. I will continue to do what i am told.

Love the user Interface of your website, I do want to become an architect! im in an engineering studio school ATM  but i love your Architecture, especially your Kew house extension. I think that is how all modern architecture should look like. One quick question. is the glass double glazing or triple glazing, I believe that's a thing.

We're not architects, I work for a creative agency, we developed the site for our client, Guy Hollaway Architects.
