A collab has been going on at the PJ discord, we've been making terraced houses on a sloped street. See the current entries here at wepixel.art.

But for any good pixel town we need more than just houses. You are challenged to make a non-residential building, such a shop, office, hospital, fire department, museum, you name it!

For this challenge we'll be using a wider template then normal, to have these buildings stand out a bit. They will still have to use the same scale and palette as the other buildings.

Scale and palette:

For the building, use this template. The height is only the max height, you are allowed to make a building that is less high (but not less wide).

You notice there already is a street included in the template. You are free to modify the street as you wish, but please make sure that it can still connect nicely to the street of an adjacent house.

A submission for this challenge will be included on the collab page at wepixel.art as well, unless you specifically request us not to (leave a note in the description or DM me).

Canvas: Width: exactly 128px. Height: Max 152px, min 56px (see the template)
Colors: Max 18 + transparency, only from the palette above.
Transparency: Required, under the road and optionally above the building (don't draw the sky)
Animation: Optional

Bonus challenge: Hide cats on or in the building.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
