are increasingly touted as the new eco-friendly American dream for Millennials--but what if the micro-housing trend could also be combined with adaptive reuse to solve the shortage of urban housing? An interdisciplinary team of Savannah College of Art and Design
(SCAD) students, staff, and alumni explored that question by transforming an underused Atlanta parking deck into SCADpad
, a community of three micro-residence prototypes. No bigger than the footprint of a parking space, each 153 square foot unit is themed after three continents where SCAD
maintains a campus: North America, Asia, and Europe. Combining urban design, architecture, and artful living, this unique micro-housing experiment is unlike anything we've seen before. Inhabitat was invited to join the official unveiling and even spent the night in a SCADpad unit. Read on to get the scoop on these innovative micro houses and the possible future face of urban living.
