Choosing a double sided, see-through fireplace.

DX1500: Escea’s Enchantress

ACCENTUATE THE ALLURE

Boasting an impressively wide flame display, clean framing lines, reflective side panels and an artistic stature; the DX Series is the Majesty of Flame.

So why wouldn’t you want to double the drama?

The reflective side panels paired with the see-through feature elongates the flame and extends it into two areas. In addition, the infinite flame effect offers a stronger, more powerful spectacle in your home, which you can simply frame with an Escea Velo Lite fascia or leave to its natural beauty.

The double sided, see-through option also adds to the charm of the DX Series fireplaces as it emphasises the striking focus it can bring to your living space.

Contemporary upgrade with an Escea ST900.

Renovating an entire house isn’t an easy feat – even more so than building from scratch. Trying to create the vision you imagine while adhering to the limitations of the current structure can be a nightmare – “can” being the key word. Bob and Sandra had their perfect design in mind and nothing was going to stop them. From the beginning, the only item they were absolutely sure of was the Escea ST900 fireplace. When they first approached the Architect, Bob remarked “we want this fireplace, so you need to build around it”. And the rest is history.

Apartment-inspired three level home.

Located in the heart of Dunedin, this apartment-inspired, three level home had rocky beginnings but worked out for the better in the end. With sweeping views of the city which incorporates the beautifully crafted, neo-Gothic castle at Otago Boys’ High, Roger Fewtrell and wife Derryn couldn’t be happier with the final result. In fact, they’re now building two more houses next door.

Roger and Derryn wanted something convenient to town, easy maintenance and simple styling. However, the longer they searched the harder it was to find something that suited their criteria. As a man who used to design commercial kitchens for his company, putting pencil to paper to plan out their dream home was like getting back on a bike. Roger and Derryn meticulously prepared the detailed floor plans to which they would pass on to Architect, Hamish Wixon (McCoy & Wixon Architects), to finish “all of the tricky bits”.

Escea Student Stories – Episode 2

Since 2009, Escea’s interns have had a long standing tradition, which not one intern has failed to complete. Hooker Lake, located in Mt. Cook National Park, is the subject of this tradition involving an icy-cool swim from the shore to an iceberg of the students’ choice.  The Hooker Valley track is the most popular of all the tracks in the Mt. Cook National Park and includes alpine views and a couple of swing-bridge crossings. Scattered with sculptures of ice, Hooker Lake has seen no less than 40 European engineering interns from Escea.
