A feature house in Australian House and Garden magazine October 2016, the White Pebble House, with interiors designed by White Pebble Interiors, combines the principles of Passive Solar design with elements of Modernist architecture set in a naturalistic Australian native garden setting with a natural pool (Billabong).

Despite its relatively large size, the intelligent combination of passive solar, lightweight construction materials, next-generation insulation products, an air-tight envelope and heat-recovery ventilation has resulted in a building that provides year-round comfort and extremely low energy consumption.

This house also has a bathroom that featured in House & Garden’s Top 50 Rooms 2015.
