For the exterior of SCADpad Europe, Trish Andersen created tonal blue lacquered wood panels resembling travertine tiles, as well as fairytale scalloped copper tiles that form the roof border. The illuminated script at the front of SCADpad Europe is by B.F.A. illustration and M.F.A. painting alumnus Michael Porten, who also created the front door op art vinal graphic.

Inside SCADpad Europe, Trish Andersen and her team of SCAD graduates created interactive fiber walls woven from 40,000 pieces of fabric. Trish wanted the house to feel like it loves you back. The walls offer affirmations when properly engaged.
Interactive Fiber Wall Interior
The rubber mats on the ceiling, floor and walls are designed by Trish and her team. The mats were first rendered in paper, then photographed and digitally printed. Trish detailed the mats with copper nailheads and small pockets in the wall, which can hold belongings such as flower vases, books and other treasures.
