The coronavirus pandemic fundamentally changed how nearly all sectors conduct their business almost overnight. But some agencies, like borne™, were already looking ahead to see how they could continue to support their property clientele and showcase properties while people practise safe social distancing and self-isolation. borne™ came to us. We were tasked with creating a series of virtual tours of different properties using both Matterport technology and 360º video.
Properties to explore from home
Shortly before the national lockdown came into force, we travelled to two property developments: Canary Quay in central Norwich and Priory Mews in North Norfolk. For both properties, we created a Matterport virtual tour that users can view on their desktop – enabling them to move around the space through their browser, see for themselves what the house is like and use a range of functions, such as measuring parts of the rooms. For Canary Quay, we also created a 360º video, presented by one of Savills’ estate agents – creating a guided tour that retains the personal feel of the house viewing experience, within the Canary Quay brand. Housed on the websites for each development, the tours are a perfect example of how the housing market can continue, even in these unprecedented times, with the help of immersive technology.
