Cooroona Lodge

Cooroona Lodge


(Currently under construction)

Location: Falls Creek, Victoria

Client: Cooroona Lodge

Architect: Go Design

Scope: Addition of a 3rd storey over the top of an existing timber and blockwork lodge in Falls Creek 

Design Achievements: To minimise impact on the existing building, the 3rd storey is supported on steel portal frames spanning over the existing building, acting as an ‘exoskeleton’. 

Design Considerations: 

  • Working on a sloping site around an existing building
  • Buildability and accessibility during construction 

Project Features: Large 6m high, 16m single span portal frames are supported on deep bored piers to support the additional level.
