New South Wales building codes and planning regulations run to millions of pages. For DIY enthusiasts, they’re impossible decode. NSW Planning & Environment, the body responsible for communicating the codes, decided that had to change.
We built an Australian first; Interactive Buildings, a purpose-built website that remodels raw data from over 2.6 million addresses into 46 living buildings. Cutting-edge code renders every NSW residence and over 100 building elements into interactive 3D experiences, showing exactly what changes can be made to properties without planning approval.
