Countryside living with a luxury twist

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.

Charitable home with an Escea ST900 Fireplace

‘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.

Heating things up with an Escea fireplace and Jaleopeno Red.

From the get-go, an Escea fireplace was in the architectural plans. Fraser Gilly, the architect in question, recommended an Escea fireplace to Andrew and his wife in their first meeting. Similar to other stories, Andrew went online to check it out. It suited their design plans, so it was the way to go.

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”.

Cool Canadian countryside coupled with warm Escea flames.

In a poetic contradiction, the spectacular view visible from the floor-to-ceiling windows is powerful to the soul yet delicate to the eye; a picture perfect surround which is complemented by the subtle, earthy components scattered throughout the home. To capture the countryside, Herman De Oliveira chose design features which would echo our ecosphere, from a marble slab bench top and polished wooden floors to an Escea NZ River Rock fuel bed.

Outdoor Courtyard with Escea flames

Completed in April 2013, this outdoor courtyard is a testament to the striking effects of contrasts in colour, texture, and materials. Designed by Sandra Batley from Flourish Gardens, the courtyard was built to provide an expansive outdoor living area for a family of four, and has all the mod cons to keep the kids entertained during the day and keep the parents and their friends up a little too late at night.

A chic urban interplay of light and dark

This apartment in the heart of Sydney pairs cool neutrals with clean lines for the last word in understated urban cool. The combined kitchen/living area features a beautiful, dramatic dark polished wood floor. A bookshelf in the same solid, dark wood stretches across an entire wall, effortlessly imparting that sense of solidity, history and permanence that can be so elusive in smaller apartments.

Rural retreat with sweeping vistas and Escea DL850

The site of this luxury rural retreat is so perfect – all-day sun, sweeping views, lush green pastures – that prospective home builders might have been tempted to rest on their laurels and let the landscape do all the talking. Luckily, the owners of this home resisted that temptation. The result is a home which is at one with its natural surrounds while still making a strong design statement.
