The Savannah College of Art and Design is a private, nonprofit, accredited university, offering more than 100 academic degree programs across its locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia; Lacoste, France; and online via SCADnow. SCAD enrolls 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 100 countries. The innovative SCAD curriculum engages professional-level technology and other advanced learning resources, and affords students opportunities for internships, professional certifications, and real-world assignments. Students are surrounded by a thriving art scene and a diverse environments at all SCAD locations , complimenting the diversity and design-led nature of the university. In a recent study, 99% of SCAD graduates were employed, pursuing further education, or both within 10 months of graduation. SCAD provides students and alumni with ongoing career support through personal coaching, alumni programs, a professional presentation studio, and more.

Dorms are provided for the students who study at SCAD at the 'SCAD Victory' housing project, a suite-style set of residential halls expanding over two blocks of Savannah's Historic Streetcar District. Whilst separate from the college itself the dorms are a design haven, reflecting the individuality and creative nature that speaks to the heart of who SCAD are. From the outside, the glass corner of the building gives a glimpse into the interiors, with 4 bold neon letters across each of the four floors, spelling out 'SCAD'.





The neon letters echo the color scheme at each level, and suite in with the tonal range used throughout that floor. Having customizable furniture was essential in order to allow this design motif to flow seamlessly throughout the building. Providing quiet nooks for focused work as well as collaboration hotspots, our Portals and Railway Carriage products have been customized on every floor to mirror the surrounding design hues.





With a matching design aesthetic, the single personal Portals look like an exact half of the 2 person Railway Carriage booths and being built into the wall allows for a flush look and a clean design feel. Overall a beautiful project and one Spacestor was privileged to be a part of.
