Hawkins Art Gallery

Business Information:
30 x 40 lot at 9 Diopside Lane, Hidden Springs
Business Description:
This brick art gallery is especially for Sadie Hawkins with plenty of display space and a small gallery area on the top floor.

  • Views are of the town and nearby lake.
  • Floor one is gallery space and public restrooms.
  • Floors two and three are both all gallery space.
  • Floor four is a private area just for the artist. It features a long counter with sink for washing paint brushes/preparing snacks, a seating area for weary feet, and space to finish/touch up paintings. It has its own private restroom.
  • Outside, the front of the building has a parking lot and the back has greenspace with a small patio. On the top floor, accessed from the private artist’s area is space to hang out, throw small get-togethers and barbeque.
  • Notes:
    Built from scratch specifically for the purpose of giving Sadie a place to store and show off all her art. Owned by the Hawkins..es.. I planned a public seating area on the patio but just never got around to it. This building kickstarted me deleting the town square and building a bunch of brick apartment buildings.

  • Views from the large windows in both front, back, and sides of this business are of the nearby stadium, hills, and lake.

  • Floor two has a neat little bar, more restrooms, lockers, a slightly larger skating rink (with pretty lights!),  and seating surrounding the rink.
  • Outside to the right side of the building is an area set up for team snowball fights. Out back is a snowboard half pipe, a pond for outdoor seasonal skating, a photo booth, and plenty of seating for onlookers.
  • Notes:
    Built from scratch. Inspired by the gym in Isla Paradisio. (Will link later when I upload the pic) I realise the roof is rather impractical anywhere there’s precipitation. Luckily, this is just virtual. Looks neat, and I love the roof color mixed with stone and wood facade.

Notes:
Built PRE-PETS from scratch.

Before pets was even announced, I liked adding horsey details to my lots, mostly in the form of jump courses made of fences. This is just a commercial hang out spot featuring such things.
