Berlin Tiered Cubes
Duplex Townhouse
based on RL apartments in Berlin, Germany
2 Apartments
1Bed/1Bath (bottom floor) = $1,055
2Bed/2Bath (top 3 floors) = $2,713
- pet friendly -

~~~ No CC! ~~~

I found the original design on-line through deZeen.

A 60 square-metre apartment containing an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, a bedroom and bathroom spans the ground floor.

Above it, a larger 130 square-metre apartment extends across the upper three floors and is accessed by a ground-floor entrance beside the firewall.

Inside the larger apartment, functions have been divided per floor to create a coherent and organised floor plan. A guest bedroom and a master bedroom with an ensuite are found on the first floor, while the upper levels host the social spaces.

Please enjoy touring the rest of this build by scrolling through the above pictures.

Both apartments are simply furnished, and very lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stoves have smoke alarms. Front doors are burglar alarmed. Telephones are on every floor.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking for one vehicle in the driveway. Remember, if you want to have a car, you must place it on the driveway before moving a sim onto the lot. The car will be community property - usable by any resident.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them.

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

There is No Custom Content Included.

Lot Size: Grid-Adjusted 20X10
Lot Price: $74,437
Rent = $1,055 - $2,713

Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Lot Adjuster used to make this lot.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!

NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)

Number of bedrooms:
      3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included:
      None: No Custom Content included
      Starter Furnishings: Lot is furnished similar to how one would expect a real life furnished house or apartment to be
Special Flags:
      Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Thanks! The furnishings are really more of a suggestion, than anything... If I ever actually play the game again, I will CC-it-up!
I'm glad you like it
