Thank you for your advice, I think we will go for writing our own web app that will use the Galaxy API as this seems the most flexible solution for the future (having the potential Galaxy updates in mind).

I don't have a ton of advice here, I imagine you could hack up Galaxy to do it. If you a have a fixed workflow or fixed collections of workflows and very clear vision of what the interface should be I guess I would just create a web app and target the Galaxy API.
Two projects to checkout would be refinery - which is a webapp that does a lot of stuff including driving Galaxy workflows. It is a bit more stripped down than Galaxy and may emphasize what you want:
A good example of actually modifying Galaxy to emphasize certain workflows would be RNA Rocket (http://rnaseq.pathogenportal.org/). Checkout out their paper here -
