PROJECT DETAILS

Built during World War II, the revitalization of Sheppard Square builds on the character of the adjacent neighborhoods and urban patterns, maintaining its unique heritage and identity. A new entry street along the Hancock corridor, presents a new image for the neighborhood while reinforcing its connection to the city and downtown area. The new entry way also creates a network of links to the existing streets, thereby promoting the long-term viability of this mixed income neighborhood, as well as encourages the continued redevelopment of the adjacent neighborhoods.

Sherman Carter Barnhart designed the phased redevelopment which includes 255 new units within six blocks, offering a variety of housing types including two and three-story town houses, single family, duplexes and multi-family configurations featuring two, three, and four-bedroom units. Each neighborhood block also includes accessible units. Each building offers visitable features and universal design.

The entire redevelopment is LEED for Neighborhood New Development (LEED ND) certified. with seven of the multi-family homes LEED for Homes certified. All units are Energy Star Certified. Sustainable features include; solar roof panels on seven multi-family homes, and high efficiency HVAC systems including geothermal on select units. Parking lots are designed with permeable pavers with subsurface stormwater detention, or concrete with bio-swales to capture stormwater. The neighborhood also features nine charging stations for electric cars. The new neighborhood is a smoke free community featuring a fitness park , and the “Park Block” features the “boxing glove” sculpture in tribute to Louisville native, Muhammad Ali.

All six neighborhood blocks have earned Enterprise Green Community certification. Enterprise Green Communities certification demonstrates the design team’s commitment to providing high performance, healthy homes for low-income families.

They Aren't "Dorms" Anymore
Today’s college students embrace housing facilities that are lively, engaging, state-of-the-art, and sustainable.

Sherman Carter Barnhart's design solutions evaluate the entire campus and campus fabric to engage the residence hall with the university campus as a whole. Residence halls are not isolated but instead a key component to the campus. Residence halls are walkable, amenity-filled communities that more closely resemble a mixed-use apartment complex than what we once called a dormitory.

Fostering Privacy & Community
It's a balancing act. On one side the majority of freshmen coming to campus have never shared a bedroom. They want to choose how and when they socialize. On the other side, university and college officials know a sense of community must exist for students to succeed.

Our design solutions provide a balance. Student rooms feature private sleeping and study areas coupled with community eating and socializing spaces. To continue to foster a sense of community, each residence hall features kitchens, lounges and study spaces.
