The House of the Faun, TS3 version
A little history lesson: One of the largest houses found in Pompeii became known as The House of the Faun because of a bronze statue of a dancing faun (satyr-like figure). The house filled an entire block (insula) in the city. Facing the street were shops (tabernae). The public entrance of the house opened into the Tuscan atrium; the private entrance opened into the tetrastyle atrium. Each area had an impluvium (a pool for catching rain water) and several dining rooms (triclinium). The public area also included workrooms, bedrooms, and a curtained study or open living room (tablinum). The private areas included bedrooms, baths, and the kitchen. The atriums and the large gardens (peristylum) were open to the sky. The smaller peristyle may have had a kitchen garden, and the larger one may have held cow or horses.
In this TS3 version, a 60x60 lot (345 Riverblossom Hills Drive) in the Riverview neighborhood was used, but no custom content was added. The building is minimally furnished to give a sense of room purpose, but to allow for the stylings (and custom content) of the new residents. The shape of the building (see floor plan) was adapted due to lot size and building limitations.
Besides the 4 shops facing the street, there are 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 5 dining areas, 2 atriums, 2 large gardens (peristyles), workrooms, a living room, library, a kitchen, a lot of sitting areas and extra rooms to become game rooms, bedrooms, or what-have-you!
The building could also work well as a community lot.
