A combination of fire, water, metal and stone inspired a truly original design for this Melbourne, Australia holiday home. The sunny glass house channels the tranquil energy emitted by the natural materials within. At the heart of the home, this master builder from Platform created a floating concrete centrepiece with a frameless gas log fire with a heat ducting system to heat the 30m long, open plan rooms with 4m high ceilings.
Have you got an open fronted fireplace that you want to replace? An old brick chimney that needs upgrading? Or do you just want to jazz up your living space with a fireplace to create atmosphere and ambience? Then this is the competition for you!
This how-to upgrade your old brick chimney or masonry cavity fireplace by using an Escea AF700 gas fireplace.
The Escea factory has been hot with activity and creativity for a good 2 years which has resulted in an elegant replacement fireplace with two times more glass than competitor products. From the beginning, the design process revolved around flame and flexibility.
Our DL and DX Series fireplaces are all Smart Heat enabled, meaning you can control your fireplace using our smartphone app and web platform. These fireplaces use an Ethernet cable which connects them to a plug-in port on a wireless router. However, getting the Ethernet cable from the router to the fireplace can sometimes be a problem, so we’ve sourced a solution using powerline adaptor cubes.
Looking at the Escea events calendar for 2015, it is definitely going to be a busy year for the Sales and Marketing Team. To welcome in the year of events, we will be attending the New Zealand Institute of Architects Conference in Auckland. This event will be held from the 10-13 of February at the Viaduct Events Centre.
Once you have decided to add flame to your outdoor area, you next have to decide what type of fire feature you will elect.
There are several things to consider when deciding on the finishing touches of your outdoor living space. Over the Summer, we’ll discuss outdoor living as a whole – benefits, features, design and yummy food.
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trends Survey reported that this year creating a ‘useful and versatile’ outdoor living space was a high priority for American home owners and the rest of the world isn’t far off that either.
The first decision being: To add or not to add flame?
Purpose built for the residing family, this countryside home in Wanaka (NZ) is an impressive but natural beauty.
Choosing Wanaka as their base was an integral part of the decision process, so they wanted to adequately reflect that choice in the home’s materials. Central Otago schist is generously used throughout the house for framing objects and creating bold entry points; three Escea fireplaces with coal and wood inspired fuel beds echo country elements; “custom rusticated” cedar weatherboard achieves a austere appearance; and finally, plastered Rockcote Integra panel cladding provides a sturdy home foundation.
‘Next Residential’ is a two-storey home builder located in Perth who offer uniquely designed and beautifully finished homes. Next Residential participated in the 2014 Appealathon by designing and building a home that is being sold entirely for charity. 100 percent of the sale proceeds go to the Spine and Limb Foundation; a non-for-profit organisation providing services, advocacy and advice to persons who have sustained permanent spinal cord injury and persons who have sustained traumatic or genetic limb loss. An Escea ST900, a low energy consumption ambient fireplace, was contributed to the home as the focal point for the family living area. Watch the whole project unfold in the timelapse video.
