This 14-story custom precast skin and structure is a brilliant addition to both the SCAD campus and Atlanta skyline.
LJC, along with Mackey Mitchell and SCAD Design Group, completed this high-rise residential tower in Mid Town Atlanta. Nestled into a steep slope, the building takes advantage of the grade change to organize the internal program of the building as it relates directly to the site. Several garden terraces surround the building and step up the slope, providing a variety of outdoor spaces for students to gather and enjoy active and passive places of interaction.
The building plays a vital role in developing the overall campus by optimizing this previously underutilized site. Acting as a critical mid-campus link between Spring House and SCAD Fash, the building’s new entry plaza doubles as a drop-off and event plaza while creating a new active space on campus for markets, food trucks, and performances.
