We get it, your dorm room is small--but what if your entire post-graduation apartment was about the size of a parking spot? As a response to the growing challenge of fitting an increasing amount of people into urban spaces, design students at the Savannah College of Art and Design released a design for a house that could fit inside a parking space. Seriously.
But just because these apartments are small doesn't mean they're ugly--take a tour of the North America-inspired SCADpad here. According to the SCADpad website, the project arose from one question: How can design change the world? The creators of the SCADpad see their creation as an example of a way to live more sustainably--each SCADpad, according to the website, "has a unique theme and visual identity, reflecting SCAD’s global footprint."
According to CNN, South Africa and England have already begun to build small houses with a different design, and New York City is working on changing some of its municipal laws and building codes to accommodate the small houses city officials feel it needs.
"[Millenials] don't mind living in smaller spaces because they really see their home as just a part of their lifestyle," Christian Sottile, dean of SCAD's School of Building Arts, said to CNN. "The city is where they live."
