We’re moving house….interactive house in fact!

by on August 25, 2016

The current Planning Portal interactive houses have been with us since 2008.  They were ahead of their time, but the technology they use is now out of date and critically, can’t be viewed on mobile devices.  Given that mobile and tablet usage continues to grow and the rest of our site is completely responsive to different screen sizes, it’s time to upgrade them.

So for the last few months we’ve been working on new improved interactive guides, using technology which can be seen on all types of device, including all Apple and Android ones, and is responsive to different screen sizes.

We’ve taken the opportunity to improve the integration between the houses, the mini guides and the site content, making it easier for users to find what they want more easily.

We’ve also taken a fresh, modern approach to the design, using an illustrative style which research tells us makes it easier for users to relate to their own homes.

Much as we loved the old houses, we’re really excited about the new ones and hope you will be too.

They’ll be live next Wednesday, 31st August on the English site, but you can see a sneak preview of the new homepage below.

    ** I looked everywhere, but couldn’t find whatever it was I could ‘sneak’ a look at. Are you sure that it didn’t get lost in the post?
