    #45 - Pied à terre

    As you breeze through the reception area on your way to the studio, you notice that the coffee table is strewn with fashion and celebrity gossip magazines. You pause for a minute, because Rose usually keeps a wide variety of reading material for waiting clients. Then you notice that on the cover of each magazine is a photograph of former supermodel turned fashion and media mogul, Ute Wagner.

    You look up and Rose is there smiling broadly. “Rose, why are there so many magazines…”

    “Because she is your next client!” Rose interjects.

    And before you can say more, in walks Ms Wagner herself, looking even more beautiful than the photographs. You usher her into the studio. Rose follows with your morning cup of coffee and a tall glass of San Pellegrino water with a single ice cube and a slice of kiwi fruit for Ms Wagner. (“How does Rose know,” you wonder, “what Ute Wagner drinks?”)

    “Perfect, Rose!” Ms Wagner says to her with her charming German accent.

    “So, Ms Wagner,” you say “how may we help you?”

    “Please call me Ute!” Her smile lights up the room. “We have already cast and will start shooting in two weeks, a new season of In or Out, which will be based in Newcrest.”

    “I see,” you nod. In or Out is a wildly popular fashion-based reality television show. Ute Wagner is the producer, host and one of the judges.

    “Since I will be flying in and out of Newcrest for several months, I decided to buy an apartment that I can use as a pied à terre. It is the top floor of a lovely old 1970’s style apartment building with two spacious balconies. The developers of the building have completely gutted the inside of the apartment, and I need you to create for me a home-away-from-home.”

    “Of course!” you say. “What are your specific requirements?”

    “Well, let’s see. I will definitely need a decent walk-in closet for my clothes and shoes,“ she laughs. “And an ensuite bathroom to the bedroom. I’ll also need an office. Oh, and a second bedroom and bathroom. My dear friend, Tim Glenn, will be a frequent visitor.”

    “Will he be the mentor for the contestants?” you ask.

    “You’ve watched the show before!” she exclaims and you find yourself blushing.

    “Anything else for the apartment? What about the kitchen?”

    “I won’t be doing a lot of cooking myself, but I need a well equipped kitchen for the caterer. And I need a place to entertain, too. Maybe one of the balconies? Well, I’ll leave that up to you. Oh, and because I will be on the top floor, the developer said I could put in a fireplace. I’d really like a fireplace somewhere in the apartment!”

    “Great!” you say. “What about style and color? What do you prefer?”

    “I’m not fussy. Something modern and comfortable—not too cluttered. As for color, surprise me!” she gives you a wry smile that makes you feel like one of the contestants on her show. “And can you have the apartment ready for me in two weeks?”

    “Yes indeed!” you reply as you show her out the door. You realize that you have your own “make it work” moment (in the words of mentor, Tim Glenn) and get right back to your desk to start sketching.

    Requirements:

    This is strictly an interior design challenge. You can download the apartment building shell here. (The shell uses only base game materials.) None of the exterior walls, wall textures, windows and doors; landscaping; common areas; or front door to the apartment may be changed. The wall height and roof may not be changed either. You may add walls, half walls, interior doors (and interior windows if you need them) to lay out the interior of the top floor apartment. Light fixtures may be added to the apartment balconies (but existing ones may not be changed).

    Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom
    Walk-in closet
    Second bedroom
    Second bathroom (full)
    office
    well-equipped kitchen
    entertainment area
    fireplace
    the usual living/dining areas

    Budget: §95,000 (This is the budget for the interior of the apartment and is in addition to the cost of the apartment building and 40 x 30 lot. The original building [build cost: §157, 990] was placed on Avarice Acres in Newcrest [§3,000]. You may place it on any 40 x 30 lot, preferably in Newcrest. Make a note of the beginning cost of the lot once the apartment building is placed and before you start building the interior of the apartment. Since Ute has already purchased the apartment, you need not worry about the lot cost or the cost of the lot with the shell apartment building.)

    Room Challenge: Create a fabulous walk-in closet for Ute Wagner. Budget: §9,000.

    Sim Challenge: Create Ute Wagner with Ambitious trait. Other traits and aspiration are up to you!

    @lisi_ja , no you do not have to make the Sim. The Sim and room (walk-in closet) are separate challenges. The main challenge is to design the apartment! :smiley:

    I don't get it. I placed the lot. I added a family to it, so I could track funds better. Gave them 95,000 after placing lot. All is fine, I have a few k to spare. I realise I'm on the wrong floor. Save every room to the library, remove build, place again, suddenly my family is 6k short...? I am at a loss. Will try again tomorrow

    Do'h!! Although when I first read this, I thought that you meant that there was a roof terrace, spent five minutes trying to figure out why my version of the lot didn't have one :smiley:

    Hmmm, not sure why that would be? Had you gone into live mode at all??

    @Lebanna , I don't know whether this would make a difference, but the wall height of the top floor is taller than the other three floors. Could that add §§§ to the room when you place it?

    Don't think it should. Wall paper is the same amount $$ on each wall height, but I did thing of that. I will just fiddle on :D
