Upper Murray Events Centre

We were engaged by Towong Shire Council to design and document the new Upper Murray Events Centre in Corryong.

The centre caters for the Corryong Football and Netball Club and Federal Football and Netball Club. The new facility accommodates the football and netball change rooms for both clubs, a 240 sqm social space, two bar and kiosk blocks (one for each club), as well as a number of community meeting rooms and a new gym facility for Corryong Health.

We chose to draw inspiration from the old grandstand, by adopting the gable form in the roof, but repeating it in an array across the new building in a contemporary approach. The facility will be used for events such as “The Man from Snowy River” festival, which is a massive annual draw card, helping to generate good revenue to the local economy. We also drew inspiration from the stone cattlemen huts to help express the locations uniqueness.
