Project - Enduring House

Location - Victoria, Australia

Product Used - HW2402 Lucerne from PurePlank

Architect - Brave New Eco

Contractor - Pledge Builders

Photographer - Marnie Hawson

‘Enduring House’ is a grand old double-fronted Edwardian home on a leafy street in Victoria, Australia. The home has undergone extensive renovation of the existing structure and an extension to provide more space for a family of five. An important consideration throughout the project included significant upgrades to the energy efficiency of the building. This included use of Havwood's eco FSC® Certified (FSC-C009500) engineered flooring from the PurePlank Collection.

To assist in delivering on an important element of the brief, improving the energy efficiency of the home, Havwoods supplied Lucerne from the PurePlank Collection. Products in this collection utilize a click system resulting in tighter joins and are suitable to be laid over underlay, both features assist to limit air leakages - an essential component in creating a more environmentally friendly house. In addition, Lucerne is an FSC© certified engineered flooring and cladding product. This ensures it has been sourced and manufactured following strict eco-friendly practices to ensure the safety and well-being of our eco-system, wildlife and people.

The tone and texture of Lucerne from the PurePlank Collection was selected to compliment both the old and the new parts of the home. It created a warm, durable base on a palette of hardwood timber, porcelain/ceramic surfaces and brass details. 

This project is a wonderful example of balancing a sympathetic refurbishment of an existing older home with the modern day needs of creating a home that is as environmentally friendly as possible. Builders Chris and Jai from Pledge Builders are both certified passive house tradespeople, and at Enduring House, have applied some of the basic principles, like properly installed and complete insulation, as well as using exterior membranes and detailing in such a manner that we achieved a high level of “draft” proofing.

On completion, the house was pressure tested by certified passive house builders and achieved an (8.99 ACH rating) high efficiency rating for any type of renovation of an older home and a tribute to the builder’s skills.
