The website design for Citybase Apartments, a Lancashire based service apartment rental agency that has apartments the world over, has been showcased on GetUikit.com website. The showcase gallery profiles a number of different websites from other clients, demonstrating how this versatile framework can be used in a range of ways. The Citybase Apartments website is featured prominently, thanks to its complex yet visually pleasing and easy to navigate style.

Uikit are a company that create lightweight and modular front-end frameworks for websites, so that business owners can use the base to build on for site layout. The company have a Google Plus group where it ask's its users to submit photos of websites that have used the framework.

Citybase apartments implemented UIkit into its latest website for many reasons such as offering a fully responsive layout grid system that can adapt to many existing website designs. The firm posted the website design to the Google Plus group, because it showed a comprehensive site build on the exact same framework that a simpler website might have used. Through this the firm wanted to show that it is possible to adapt the framework and add extras, such as other design features and added support for IE8 to the design, which is something that the basic Uikit framework doesn’t offer.

The Citybase Apartments website looks very stylish thanks to the use of the icon font, Font Awesome, which has also been used on the company’s other website. Citybase keep the website up to date and ensure that it is updated with the current information, blogs and updates relevant to Citybase Apartments customers and people exploring the site for its various in depth analysis of places to see and do in many locations across the world.

How Uikit Works

Uikit provides its customers with a framework, which can then be used to suit the needs of a particular company. The first step is to download the Uikit program file, which contains all of the JavaScript, CSS and font files that the company will need for the project. Because the core format does not have any styling to keep it slim, the user will also be provided with an additional distribution with a flat style.

Once the user has all of the files, the user will need a good quality code editor, such as Sublime Text. The customer can use the Uikit CSS and add it to the header of their HTML 5 document. From there, the user is free to customise the project as much as is required.

Uikit offers over 30 different extendible modular components, which can be combined with each other in numerous ways. These include components for layout, defaults and navigations.

A flexible system like this was an obvious choice for the Citybase serviced apartments website, as it needed to be attractive and stylish while still functional. The website needed to offer a lot of information in an organised simple way, so that visitors could find what they were looking for quickly and easily.
