Homes designs often take inspiration from something of significance to the homeowners, but Rocky House, a family abode in a small town called Redland Bay, takes inspiration from something far more simplistic. People's tastes may change over time, but geography is far more permanent, so this Australia home is inspired by its street's name: Rocky Passage Road.

Rocky House earns its title thanks to stone masonry on several of the walls at the front of the home. Due to its expense, stone isn't often the primary building material for structures, but the homeowners couldn't resist adding it into the layout of their house.

The remainder of the home contrasts against those craggy walls with a sleek and modern design that emphasizes natural light by adding ample windows.
