Le Corbusier he called himself, he's a well known architect and painter in the minimalist functional style. His real name was Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris. I visited one of his houses in Paris two years ago. This is not a copy it's just a study of his style.

Sometimes Villa La Roche in Paris was rather amusing with it's kitchen just being a strange tiny room with fixed fittings. I gave this school a full 1950's kitchen, after all we don't have butler's and often the kitchen is where the family likes to sit isn't it.

I learned a few things from his design. He has very little direct sunlight to where you sit. In rooms with windows it was usually small windows and he selected the location with much care. Like in this room it's his study or livingroom I don't remember. He has lights high on the wall, they lit up the room, but hopefully less intense. They added the strange ventilation shaft later on when the light still warmed intensly in summertime. Doesn't look like it helps a lot, but this is in september. The picture has been taken by me on my digital SLR.

Take a good look at the chair in the room, you have probably seen it before and yes, it's by LeCorbusier. If you don't remember, make it black leather and note the metal rods on it.

This is the family kitchen, it's a bit more muted than the students kitchenette. In the last minute I decided to introduce Ambitions because of the drawing table.

I gave it an artschool layout because it seemed like a good idea. It's zoned as residential, you can change it to artschool if you like, but you will lose the dishwasher and stove I think it is, if you do. When I introduced Ambitions I also put a washer and dryer in the family part of the house.

Family part: The house has a master and a single bedroom, both ensuite, a big livingroom, and a family kitchen with a laundryroom in a corner.
The art school: 3 beds for students, and a bathroom in the hallway. The master studio has one bed for an exhausted master painter and a bathroom he/she can put a lock on if needed. The School has a big room with easels and a drawing table and sink, a kitchette again with bath, a TV room downstairs and gamesroom above.
Garden: it has a simple camping table for the family outside and the students has a basic grill with table and chairs. Good size lawn to take out the easels in good weather.

The video will be up when it's ready.

The house has a middle level built with cfe cheat. For that reason you shouldn't paint the ceilings in this house.

Files: Only package files where you download the content yourself is available here I'm afraid. You can either convert the files to package files or just download the content as sims3pack files and install them through the lancher. If you download the content via the launcher the files will probably develop a fever and die - as launcher files usually do. I mean the survival rate for sims3pack files is rather low. Just kidding

I tested with this kitchen from Buffsumm and didn't have the problems with glitching converting it to packagefiles, as I had with the other kitchens ... if you feel adventurous.
