The RAK foundation was established with the goal of making an extensive art collection accessible to the public. The art collection website design reflects the longstanding history of arts appreciation in the Kingdom of Bahrain, as well as the perceptive nature of its founder.
The RAK foundation exists within a converted traditional Bahraini House, the home where Rashid Al Khalifa was raised. The collection features a range of paintings to designs, from European academism to Middle Eastern Contemporary. Careful consideration is given to the placement of each piece and it’s positioning amidst the surrounding architecture.
Art Collection Website Design
The website design has a minimal and contemporary feel. The idea was to create a neutral space where artworks from the RAK Foundation’s diverse collection can be displayed to their best effect. A strong use of typography combined with some elegant scrolling techniques give an air of sophistication to the website design without detracting visual attention from the artworks themselves. The website design performs well on all screen sizes. We look forward to developing the website further once the gallery fully opens to the public.
