Love the exterior. It's very well done. I've been looking for apartments like that

If I may give some feedback on the interior, I'd say that apartments of this type would have an entrance hall (but maybe not in Vienna??). At least in the European countries I've been to, you'd rarely walk directly into the kitchen in a posh apartment, unless it was a studio or a loft type thing. - But maybe it's just meant to be a traditional type apartment??

Hey you all - thanks for your nice feedback! Glad you like it.

It's a typical old Viennese apartment building from the exterior. I see many of them here in town and do think that they are typical Viennese from the outside and the furniture is european or at least austrian/german? We have here so many styles (modern, cottage look, contemporary etc.) Maybe we can't speak of a specific style anymore, but I tried to furnish the apartments each in a different type. Cottage style furniture, modern, rustic and so on.

smmi73- Yes you are right. Most of these buildings have an entrance hall where you can take the stairs or the lift to the apartments, but I didn't want to make it that big because it then lags my pc and I like all my lots to be good playable and not just to look too bombastic with so much stuff sims can't actually use. But to make it more realistic, sure it should have that and maybe I make a version like that.

I wish I could live in one of these amazing apartments... ó.o

And I do agree with this idea of lots being good playable and not just to look too bombastic. Entry halls, for Sim houses, just take good space that otherwise would serve for something more useful. I do have some pc lags too, and as much playable a lot is, the more I like it.

Congrats for the wonderful creation, himawara106! Your apartments creations put you in my favourite creators list!
