We’ve just upgraded our Design Your Fire tool and thought it was the perfect time to throw a Facebook competition to promote it…
Escea has just revamped its Design Your Fire tool, allowing you to customise the look of your dream fireplace even more than before.
With this interactive design tool, you can create and compare a wide range of Escea fireplace ideas, mixing and matching the design features. This allows you to visualise each fire, so you can pick the perfect one to suit your home.
Design Your Fire is super easy to use. Basically you just want to let the orange circles guide you. Start by choosing your fireplace model, then fascia (frame) and finally the fuelbed of your choice.
An Auckland architect flips the design and layout of a dated 1960s home on its head, achieving a modern family-friendly home with flexible and enriching spaces.
It’s often said that when you buy a house you should live in it through all the seasons before you undertake major renovations. Tim and Anna, the owners of this Mount Albert home in Auckland played by that rule book when they purchased this 1960s brick and tile home five years ago.
Escea’s latest release, the Truly Frameless DS1400 gas fireplace is now available for purchase. The new model comes in both single and double sided variations, with the fuelbed options of Crystalight, Coals, Rocks, Logs and Woodland Selection.
A kitchen for a couple in the food business, who love cooking and entertaining. That’s the sort of open brief that Damian Hannah of German Kitchens can really get stuck into.
The multi-award-winning designer was called in by the New Plymouth clients to detail the generous kitchen space in their complete renovation of a 1980s beach-side home. The brief then morphed, Hannah designing the entertainment and fireplace for the adjoining living room, before overhauling the bathroom and master bedroom closet.
Escea has released a new optional extra for our DS and DX Series fireplaces – Low Reflection Glass (LRG). This feature adds an anti-reflective coating to the glass, for optimal flame viewing.
Some of you may be thinking, but glass is glass, will less reflection really make that much difference to the look of my fireplace? But those of you who have seen normal glass side by side with LRG will understand the difference – low reflection glass is nearly invisible.
Renovators love Auckland’s inner-city suburb of Herne Bay for its rows of Victorian bay-fronted villas. Architect Darren Jessop of Jessop Architects has had a considerable hand in renovating more than a few of them. He’s even shared his designs in an e-book, aptly titled “Heritage”, and figures he has five projects on the go around the suburb right now.
Escea showroom Stoke Fireplace Studio is a Strategic Partner in this year’s Urbis Design Day – a much anticipated event featuring Auckland’s most design-led showrooms.
Escea has been offering Danish mechanical engineering students internships since 2007 and the latest round of applications are OPEN NOW for August – December.
Outdoor rooms are experiencing a ‘moment’ right now, with landscape designers being given increasingly complex briefs.
We caught up with two leading landscape and garden designers to find out what’s driving this outdoor room zeitgeist. And, more importantly, how we can make the magic happen in our own backyards.
Sandra Batley from Flourish Gardens believes that as our lives get busier we are looking for ways to relax and unwind. An outdoor room offers that escape.
“Properties are also getting smaller and higher density living is more common place. Homeowners are therefore happy to pay professionals to help them create that sanctuary outdoors and get as much as they can from their biggest asset – their home,” says Sandra.
