The Harrodian School London 360 Virtual Tours
The Harrodian School in South West London sits on the former Harrods Sports Club site. Although lots has changed since the sports club handed over ownership, the school still retains a stunning French aesthetic. From the open air pool that sits within a classroom lined courtyard, to the café resembling a Parisian eatery, it is one of the most beautiful schools we’ve photographed in recent years.
The admissions team required a virtual tour that could be used in online open days, virtual events and to be displayed on the website as a means of attracting new pupils. An aerial scene was essential, not only to show the extent of the school grounds, but to show the schools proximity to The River Thames and Central London. The aerial scene was then populated with the ground based scenes captured, colour coded to match the area of the school they represented. Key scenes have information points included to describe the area being viewed. Still images have also been included in each information point showing school life in action.
This project also tested our editing skills, as on the day of shooting building work was still ongoing to the important courtyard section of the tour. We edited the scene to ensure no scaffolding was left, returning the courtyard to its former beauty. You can see a before and after of this 360 scene below –
We loved working on this tour, and the admissions team at The Harrodian were delighted with the results.
