Filter were delighted to be appointed to create a new online experience ahead of launching one of the first SO/ branded properties.
The first phase of this project was to create an initial microsite to reflect the new brand identity created by Ennismore for the launch of the first SO/ property.
The website was built for the SO/ Paris Hotel, ahead of its launch in the autumn of 2022. The website links to the Ennismore central booking system and acts as a brochure-style site for visitors to digest the beauty of the brand and experience of the hotel.
This phase was an initial step towards the end goal of developing a global, multi-lingual website for a growing array of hotel properties within the SO/ brand.
As the brand identity had recently been updated by the Ennismore team, the Filter team worked closely with them to build a website in-line with the new design style, reflecting interactive elements and ensuring the design came to life with a high-end feel.
We included features such as a dynamic contact form and also set up Google Analytics to be able to understand user behaviour in this initial launch phase.
To ensure the website is accessible to both French and English visitors, the Filter team integrated the WordPress Multilingual plugin. Allowing visitors to select the appropriate language.
As part of subsequent phases, the iterative build approach taken by the Filter & Ennismore team will allow us to add languages as required for other SO/ hotel properties as we grow the site into a global online presence, ensuring geo-targeting will be used to feature relevant content to the visitor’s location.
The initial SO/ website launched on October 6th, 2022.
You can visit SO/ Paris to digest the hotel’s offerings and seamlessly link to the main booking platform.
Ennismore were happy with both the style and functionality of the initial website and we look forward to expanding the project further with subsequent phases in the pipeline.
We’ve enjoyed working with Ennismore on this project, seeing their vision brought to life in line with their newly updated brand identity for the SO/ properties. The journey ahead is exciting, and we’re enthusiastic for the future project phases.
