High School


Here’s Bimlico’s high school!

It was actually one of the very first buildings I made when I first got Sims 3, which is a little weird since this is not my style at all!

But I was inspired by something on TV, and built the high school, but since then, I never really found the right place for.

I think it fits perfectly here! :yahoo:





The high school has quite an unusual schoolyard – on the roof!



Even though there isn’t much of a schoolyard, the whole canal area is right outside the doors!

    This is so awesome! I love the walls – they kind of remind me of Mondrian. They really make the lot, I think. Having a schoolyard on the roof is such a creative idea too. I’ve never seen a school like that but it strikes me as a very urban kind of thing. So cool!

      I had to look up Mondrian, but :rubeyes: you are right, I made the high school look exactly like his artworks :rofl: Thank you, Carla! :hugs: The building was inspired by a Danish school I saw on TV, but I’ve never seen schools like this IRL either! I agree, it’s very urban, and that’s probably why I was having such a hard time finding the right place for it, but I like it here :)

    Oh, it fits perfectly in this area! :heartpump: You know this, because I already said it when I first saw this building, but; I love this so much! It has a unique style, and modern isn’t usually my thing! The schoolyard in the roof is also a very creative idea.

    That place is SO awesome! I’m not into modern neither, but it suits so perfectly your Canal district. I love also how you’ve decorated it, with colors reminding the exteriors. I like also how it indeed reminds Mondrian without being totally those bright Mondrian colors. Somehow it makes them more classy and modern. In short: I love! :heartpump:

      Thank you, Sandy! :hugs: I’m not sooo fond of the interior decorating here, but I wanted to leave it pretty simple, because it will mostly just be used as a shell for the Rabbithole Rug :chuckle: And you know me, if I decided to decorate it fully, it would be totally cluttered with books and papers and knick-knacks EVERYWHERE! :giggle:

    I looooooooove this school!!! I thought of Mondrian, too, and then of course I thought of the Partridge Family Bus! :lol: (I always wanted to have a funky painted schoolbus… :giggle: ) You did such a fantastic job with the colors and design and layout! It looks so modern and quirky, but very realistic…I love the solar panels and the schoolyard on the roof! :clap: Now you make me wish I had a modern area in Whimsett Cove… :hmm: (I only have a modern houseboat…that’s it!) Anyway, this school is super-inspiring!!!

    • Sara says:

      :spit: Hahahahah, I didn’t know the Partridge Family, but yes, I totally made a high school for their bus :rofl:

      It is really crazy for me to get all this great feedback on this build :blush: it is completely outside my comfort zone to build something like this and I have never attempted it again :dunno:

  9. Lea says:

    Oh and what walllpaper did you use there?Is it from the game? :D

    • Sara says:

      The wallpaper is definitely from the game… :thinking: I think from the Pets EP! It looks like something you’d use in a barn :chuckle: But with some recolouring, it can look like this too :thumbs:
