Housing Revitalization

Lyman T. Johnson Hall & Donovan Residence Hall are Phase I of a the total revitalization of all on-campus housing at the University of Kentucky. While replete with modern living spaces, academic planning was a primary focus in the new facilities.

Two, four story buildings create a living-learning community featuring double occupancy semi-suites, generous community living, as well as study and classroom areas, including 16 active learning/meeting spaces. A communal kitchen capable of catering up to 100 guests and high-tech laundry facilities are located in each building. Three multi-disciplinary classrooms with furniture on casters, allow the switch from instructional classroom to open collaborative co-curricular programming space in just minutes.

Student living and learning are enriched with works by Kentucky artists in the lobbies, as well as an inner courtyard with an outdoor amphitheater wired for lights and sound for dramatic productions and concerts.

A cupola towering over all is equipped with UK blue lighting that will shine on special occasions.

The twin residence halls showcase supportive technology for modern student living, including Ethernet, wireless, and satellite connections throughout.

Home to approximately 400 Honors College students, Donovan Hall includes a walkout lower level to accommodate the Honors College academic and administrative needs. Smart classrooms, offices and multi-purpose rooms allow for many of the student residents to attend classes in the building where they live.

Lyman Johnson & Donovan Hall, are each LEED Silver certified featuring geothermal heating and cooling technology, as well as an overabundance of bike racks to encourage sustainable living.

When complete it will offer over 600 units of affordable housing. The buildings reflect the character of nearby neighborhoods while maintaining their heritage and identity.

The entire redevelopment is pursuing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and USGBC Kentucky LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) and Enterprise Green Community certification.

Sherman Carter Barnhart has worked with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority for over 25 years, and we are proud to be a partner with McCormack Baron Companies on the Beecher Terrace Revitalization.
