The Picture Place is a small photo studio. Surrounding one end of the building is an intricate fountain consisting of domes and streams. The other end of the studio is surrounded by a porch with lots of seating for customers.

Inside, on the main level, is a tiny reception area where your Sims are able to purchase a wide assortment of cameras. The rug consists of 13 different pieces to give it quite a fun shape and guests can enjoy the fireplace while they listen to some sweet tunes.

Of course, it isn’t a photo studio with some equipment. Separated from the reception area by some awesome room dividers, your Sims can get their pictures taken (or take some of their own) in this area overlooking the fountains outside.

From the porch outside, Sims can access the two bathrooms downstairs. They come with a shower, seating, toilet and sink and a locker for changing outfits. Again, throughout the whole design of this space, you’ll see my obsession with symmetry shining through, so both bathrooms are designed the same.

The Sandy Run Spa is a three-story modern spa which features a variety of amenities and skill-building activities for your sims. The exterior of the building is trimmed with shrubbery and flowers, as well as beautiful fountains that will draw visitors in.

Once inside, there are endless activities to ensure your sims stay stress-free. From a variety of meditation locations, two yoga studios with room for four instructors at a time, multiple drink stations, a small gym, chess and a massage room with steam lounges. Your sims will find lots to do and tons of ways to relax and recuperate.

In total, the Sandy Run Spa has 4 women’s and 4 men’s washrooms. On the main floor, there are toilets and baths separated by a shower room. On the top floor, there are smaller washrooms with just toilets and lockers (every toilet is accompanied by a sink).

Probably the best feature of the Sandy Run Spa is the rooftop patio and pool. The pool is huge and beautifully decorated, you can get a hand and/or foot massage or meditate next to it and get your drink on while overlooking Newcrest.

One thing you’ll notice about a great many of my builds on The Sims 4, and especially in Newcrest, is that I have a serious obsession with symmetry. The Sandy Run Spa is a perfect example of this symmetry. It’s something I keep trying to move away from and keep ending back up at.

You can find the Sandy Run Spa on The Sims 4 Gallery. I invite you to download it and place it in your own worlds. If you end up changing things up, I’d love to see what you come up, so please post links to your changes in the comments below.

Finally, look forward to more posts on my builds in Newcrest including the Cookout Lookout Lounge, the Cypress Hill Library and the Fern Park MoMA.
