Built to have minimal resistance against nature, the Croft House is a modern abode that harmonizes with its environment. The Croft House was built to lie flat against the ground in Inverloch, Australia to seamlessly blend in with the land. Since there are strong prevailing winds in Inverloch, blending in with the environment ensures that the structure is extremely stable. The building is further reinforced through double glazing and a passive solar design.

Designed by architect James Stockwell, the luxurious home maintains a modern and minimalist indoor design despite the spartan exterior. Soft lights illuminate the wood ceiling and smooth stone floors. The open concept design makes the building seem extremely spacious and free. Combined with expansive windows, the Croft House makes for an extremely impressive sight.
