PROJECT DETAILS

Lewis Honors College

Lewis Hall is part of the ongoing efforts by the University of Kentucky and Education Realty Trust to revitalize the on-campus housing. Lewis Hall houses 345 students and includes the Lewis Honors College and Cafe.

The five story building offers a mix of double occupancy private two-bedroom suites interspersed with living learning community spaces and social gathering spaces. The latest technologies including wireless internet and satellite television enhance the living experience, as well as amenities such as community kitchens and high tech laundry facilities. The living environment is enhanced with work by local Kentucky artists scattered throughout the lobbies and public spaces.

The residence hall offers multiple social spaces with views throughout central campus. The pedestrian outdoor breezeway aligns with the courtyard/amphitheater at the adjacent to Lyman Johnson and Donovan Halls. An open courtyard with eating and gathering spaces provides connectivity to the adjacent 90 dining facility.

Lewis Hall features two distinct entries, one for the Honors College and one for the student residents. A cupola equipped with variable color lighting that shines on special occasions, sits overtop the residence hall entry and is prominently featured along the promenade tree allee.

Lewis Hall includes 20,000 SF to accommodate the Lewis Honors College academic and administrative space. Smart classrooms, offices (including the dean’s office) and a Cafe provide Honors Students a living, learning and social space in the building in which they live. The Lewis Honors College entrance includes a prominent bronze curtain wall with embossed aluminum panels, full height limestone and a bronze metal roof. Entering this space, you are welcomed by high ceilings, wood finishes and lounge/learning spaces.

Amazing project for the future of the Russell County Students.Progress continues on the Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center! The building (under construction by Branscum Construction Company, Inc) is beginning to resemble the design rendering by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. The center is being constructed on the grounds of Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region. The center is expected to serve 2,215 high school students and 620 adults in all five primary Kentucky Workforce Investment Board sectors — advanced manufacturing, healthcare, technology, construction trades, and transportation.
