The new Katharine B. Garff wing completes Kahlert Village at the University of Utah in time for fall classes.
The resident assistants were busy unpacking boxes and settling in before students arrive next week at the University of Utah—the first occupants of a brand new five-story wing of Kahlert Village residential community. With 430 new beds, this is the fourth wing of the village, and it completes the X-shape design by MHTN Architects, designed for LEED Platinum, built by Okland Construction, and with engineering by BHB Engineers.
Kahlert Village is designed as a community with central dining, an outdoor courtyard, a meditation space, music rooms, and Adobe commons. The four residence wings have themed communities for shared interests of the students.
All five levels house student rooms and social spaces. Bathrooms are shared. Secure indoor bike storage is on the first level.
