Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A busy morning in the Big City. Another one. You can't stand that fast pace of life anymore. There's no time for you. No time for your home. No time for anything. Suddenly, an interesting building catches your eye. You stop at the pavement. This is it. You're in front of Helen's Company of Style.

You look in amazement. Helen Swietlinski definitely knew what she was doing when she created this place in 1920's. Wide shop windows and red carpet invite you over. You enter this majestic world of gold and burgundy. A group of prize-winning stylists and tattoo artists approaches you. They'll be more than pleased to make you an icon of the newest trends.

When you're done, why not do something with your living place? You're going upstairs. Here, at Company's projects office, an architect full of ideas will take care of your home's new look. And if you're already here, maybe you'll want to have some nectar or drink at the local bar?

Finally, it's evening. It's time to go. You're going outside, completely refreshed. You're turning yourself around to look at this beautifully illuminated building for the last time. Yes. This definitely was a well-spent day.


***

As I said in previous upload, a lack of fine community lots for Ambitions EP's assignments was bothering me from the beginning. Last time when I tried to do something with that I ended up with a salon in an old mansion (it's here if you're interested). This time, I wanted to create something more urban (as you won't convince me that EA's hut fits well in Bridgeport). I checked my architecture album and decided that the 1920's style will be perfect for an artistic business in a bustling city. And well... The description above tells you the rest.

To sum things up, apart from a stylist station and tattoo chair, you'll also find here a drink bar with a nectar rack and a projects room, which can be used not only by stylists, but also by architects, who are low on cash or just don't have another place to work.

The whole lot was playtested and no Custom Content or mods were used to build it (just "moveobjects" code).

Enjoy playing!

This is Nice! Very tastefully done. I don't get into the abandoned warehouse type thing or the hut as you called it, so this is great!

I was pleased to see you included a fire-escape. I don't know if elevators are always reliable in game-play, but I like buildings to reflect real-life requirements as much as possible.

I really like this lot. Really REALLY like this lot.

I'm going to use this lot as is in Bridgeport, replacing EA's salon, and will put it in Twinbrook and Sunset Valley maybe taking out the salon part and making it an exclusive loung there.
I absolutly love the exterior's look and love the art deco feel of the whole building. Love the fact there's no CC and that it's on a 30x20 so it will fit in most anywhere.

Um and did I mention I really love this lot?

Thanks a lot for those positive feedback! I've put a lot of research, time and effort into details and lighting to make it look realistic, so your satisfaction is a huge reward for me. Again, thanks!

PS. And yes, since my Sims in TS2 were stuck in their flat because the only elevator in the building broke down I'm quite sensitive in the matter of emergency exits.

excellente! You did a fantastic job at creating an Art Deco building. And I always felt the same way about EA not creating a quality lot for Ambitions career, especialy for an urban city. This would look great in Bridgeport as well as SV!

Of course you can! And this is an info for everybody - as long as it's with credits you can use my work in your creations and even change some stuff (e.g. trees or pavement) to match surroundings (as I know that details usually can make a huge difference ).
