Interior Motives

Caroline Cox | May 1, 2014 | Articles National

To celebrate its 35th year, the prestigious Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta has plans for a new development that’s as equally unexpected as it is awesome. They recently unveiled a new microhousing experiment, dubbed SCADpad, that will transform its Midtown campus’ parking structure into livable residences for students. The decked-out community, designed and developed by a team of 75 current students, 37 alumni and 12 professors, will feature a workspace conceived by furniture design students, a community garden that uses sun harvesting and high-efficiency composting systems, its own park and more. The 135-square-foot units (about the size of a standard parking space) will be furnished in one of three custom design themes inspired by SCAD’s global locations in Asia, Europe and North America. Eco-conscious student housing that doesn’t skimp on style? Move over, we’re movin’ in! @scaddotedu
