One of the things in miss in the Sims 3, is the university. So I decided to build a house for students. Of course, you can't send your sims to the university, but I have four sims, who work parttime and like to party a lot, so this house is perfect for them.
This house was inspired by 3 houses I saw in particular, the Multimodern house by EA, the Augustusmaan house by EA (I've got the Dutch version, so I don't know the English names) and the Modern Dream House by fling-89.
Lot size: 30x20 (however, you can place it on bigger lots, too)
There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living/diningroom, a kichen, a basement for bicycles and a swimming pool.
The house was built with the base game with patch

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
