Omni Associates – Architects was selected by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Parks and Recreation Division to design a new wing adjoining the Twin Falls Resort State Park lodge. According to Twin Falls State Park Superintendent Scott Durham, the changes at Twin Falls mark the park’s maturing and coming into its own. “The architects have done a wonderful job putting together two dramatically different styles and preserving both.”
With the expansion project, the guest capacity has more than doubled, from 20 to 47 rooms. Other changes include a new courtyard, a transformed lobby, an indoor pool and fitness area, an improved gift shop, and enlarged conference rooms. Accessibility was also a design consideration. Although the original structure’s multitiered steps present an obstacle for some guests, the new wing is fully accessible. The entrance to the new addition is on the same level as the restaurant and primary conference area, and an elevator provides easy access to other floors.
