Website adoption


Visit website
Burghley Estate needed a digital partner to adopt their existing Craft CMS website.

Offering a magical and explorative experience offline, they asked us to take them to the next level digitally, with design and user experience in line with their rebrand, delivering a digital presence as beautiful as Burghley.

Working with their incumbent to adopt the existing Craft 3 website, we migrated the site to Craft 4, stabilising the environment, creating a strong foundation for the homepage redesign, fresh UI kit and rearchitecture of the website’s navigation for a more intuitive user journey. Since we’ve introduced an interactive map and begun work on internal page refreshes.

A note from our client

"From our very first conversation with Abstrakt, it was clear the team understood exactly what we wanted to achieve and that they knew how to get us there.

Every stage from site adoption, architecture, web design and development has been expertly handled, delivered on time and to the highest standard. It’s great to be working with such a talented, pro-active and responsive team. Phase 2 is now underway, and we’re super excited to see how Abstrakt help us take our site to the next level."
