The Phase 2 development at the Spring House parcel of SCAD Atlanta is an exciting opportunity to continue to establish a campus and advance SCAD’s brand in a growing, bustling city.
With the development of SCAD Forty in Phase 1, SCAD’s adjacent existing residence hall, Spring House, could be demolished and that property redeveloped for additional student housing and other campus uses. This new development will provide approximately 1,000 new beds to meet the on-campus capacity for SCAD Atlanta’s growing student population. The new Spring House will also offer dining and fitness amenities, academic space, a parking garage, campus store and a performance theater.
The design team of Mackey Mitchell Architects and Lamar Johnson Collaborative began working with SCAD in October 2018 and multiple options and iterations were studied before the overall concept was selected.
With the general public able to park in the garage and attend theater events, the central courtyard space will be open to the public to some degree. Pedestrian circulation builds from the SCAD Forty site, strengthening connections between Phase 2, SCAD Forty. The natural movements reinforce the site design of SCAD Forty to create fluid connections through campus.
Target occupancy of Phase 2 is Fall 2022.
