SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building, formerly the Hotel Utah, has been a major Salt Lake City landmark since its construction began in 1909. The adaptive reuse scheme for this project involved completely gutting hotel floors and transforming eight levels into open-plan offices. The ground-level lobby and Empire Room were completely renovated, while a new 500-seat, 70mm film theater and retail outlets were added. A meeting facility with a pipe organ was located on the mezzanine level. The entire top floor was rebuilt for restaurants and meeting rooms, thereby continuing the traditional use of this special space.
