We love to showcase all the restaurants in Florida, but when you have the opportunity to do it for someone famous, it was a great shot for a small business like itourvista 3D. Gloria and Emilio Estefan own a restaurant at Sunset walk in MargaritaVille, Orlando. Originally, we wanted to do this 3D virtual tour to enter a contest with Matterport called “Nominate my Space” and came very close to win the nomination; but since posting it in social media, users are sharing the tour over a hundred times.
What is so cool about this project?
The best-highlighted feature is the kitchen. The place has a lot of potential all throughout the floor plan but having a kitchen so clean we had to display it. Another thing we liked is how the multicolor lights show on the floor plan as well. It gives the place a nice ambiance even in daylight. Estefan Kitchen takes Covid 19 and social distance very seriously. This is why it was very important for the GM to make sure the tour showed the setup of the tables according to the social distance implemented in Florida since the pandemic. He told us, he wanted to show viewers all the precautions the restaurant has done in compliance with the law. The results were amazing. When the GM saw the final product in his hand, said to us “Oh wow, I am holding the entire restaurant and look! There are even videos!” He loved that we added YouTube videos of Gloria Estefan in the tour and access to all their social media links and said “This is a great tool for my marketing department” and indeed it has been.
Details of the project
This project took about 4 hours to scan and 6 hours of editing. It contains 320 scans all through the entire property, which is about 8,000sq.ft. Not including the patio in the 3D walkthrough. We added about 18 Mattertags with links to menus, video, store purchase, reservation pages and social media. The tour was also uploaded to Google Street View. According to the analytics of Google Maps, the tour is visited 40,000 times in only 2 months.
Hint: Our interactive 3D model is an entertaining way for your client to get to know your restaurant and start imagining their experience there.
