Making room in a micro-house

Posted Mar. 20 2014 by Tarana Mayes

So where will the inhabitants put all their, well, stuff? This is the challenge that industrial design students working on SCADpad received.

Though their names have yet to be announced, the students who will have the good fortune to live in the micro-housing prototypes being constructed at Savannah College of Art and Design weigh heavily on the minds of the designers and builders who are quickly making SCADpad a reality.
