After real life commitments are eased for a time I resume work on my client's new house.
Ground floor recention/lounge.
1st floor entertaining area.
2nd floor party deck with access to projector and bedroom.
3rd floor bedroom.
4th floor partypool observation deck.
Cinema comprises the rear part of the building and is basically a box.


Hopefully you won't have to pay to get in!
Plenty of places to put my architectural elements.


Entrance to the cinema. This is the default 'plywood' texture of S.L. The textures I apply later will bring it all to life.


The Party deck at the top of the spiral staircase. There will be a projector in the small stage-like area in the central covered part pointing into the cinema (obviously). This is my way of saying the projectionist (and owner)is the party guy! Lots of opportunities to add my architectural details.


The partypool observation deck in the making... All a work in progress so watch this space.


August 23rd I got a lot of work done, in fact everything is almost complete. Just some tweaks and details left.
Here is the party-pool deck at night.


Party-pool during the day. Art deco and eastern influences. Yes, I used my favourite 'splashy water' in the pool!


Here is where I am so far. Still som textures to go on and bits n pieces to add. The main colour scheme is green, blue and gold.


The ticket booth is a bit of fun.


In we go...


The ground floor entrance to the cinema area. Oops...seems a piece of carpet texture got miss-placed on the ceiling here! Another tweak I the likes of which I find when I actually walk through a build and see from an avatar's perspective.


I love my little details. It's my trade mark I guess.


Inside the cinema area. The royal box is meant for the owner! The seats are just 'right click the edge of a step' to sit for a good view.


I wonder how many avatars could sit in here?


1st floor looking to the balcony. The alcove has an illuminated picture of the Fox Theatre in Oakland, C.A. This building was part of my inspiration thanks to the client suffesting it as a reference.


Staircases are always a challenge. This one is simple and works well. Hey I even fitted the carpet all the way up, lol.


The party deck. I'll probably build an art deco style movie projector in the stage like area to the left. it has a one way view to the cinema at the right height. The alcove opposite is the ascent tube to the bedroom.


The party deck. I still have some details to add and maybe some planting.
I'll take more pics when I'm done...


After a few final tweaks for the day...


Ticket booth from the inside.


Looking to the rear of the cinema. The artwork hides the projector room and bedroom viewing port.


The client provided the photo of the stage with the curtain.
