Poplar Day Centre – a day centre for the elderly offers elderly residents of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets a friendly environment for socialising, learning and stimulation. The centre offers a wide range of activities, including crafts, art, music and movement, darts, quizzes, crosswords, discussion groups, reflexology and a beauty group where visitors can have their hair set or nails done. It ensures that the elderly have somewhere to go where they can feel welcome, relaxed and among friends.
Eye Revolution were commissioned to create a set of virtual tours of the centre, so potential visitors can explore the centre before visiting, enabling them to feel that the settings are familiar even before they arrive. The centre created a soundtrack of people talking about the centre and what it has offered them, which plays while you view the 360 tours. The interactive interface allows viewers to understand the layout of the centre, and they can always tell where they are by referring back to the highlighted area of the floorplan. Viewers have the option of clicking a button to take the tours to fullscreen size, and can zoom in to see the detail.
