Porter Architects has renovated a 1940s house in Lake Wendouree, Ballarat, Victoria. Completed in 2017, the Lake Wendouree House measures 292m² (3,143ft²).
The plan was to create two architecturally delineated zones, the original front with bedrooms, bathrooms and a study, leading to a contemporary, naturally lit extension. The existing hardwood floors that were in perfect condition at the front of the house were matched with recycled floorboards in the rear extension, creating a common thread which works for both zones and unifies the new and the old. The bedrooms have been treated to contemporary en suites, with on-trend black tap fittings and classic wall tiles sourced by the couple.
