Fancy a fireplace in your kitchen?

Fires can be integrated into every living space in a home. One trend proving increasingly popular internationally is the incorporation of a fire into a kitchen area.

Providing a dramatic design statement, as well as being aesthetic the inclusion of a fire into a kitchen is also practical. A fire connects a kitchen and living area and by installing it into the bench also means that the spaces in the home are being utilised.

Our Architectural Detailer Grant Simpson has drafted the following images of fires installed in kitchen scenarios.

  1. please advise what the power vent system looks like in these pictures? Clearly the venting is out the basement or crawl space. I I would lke to mirror the venting shown ie down across and out but need to know more to show our contrator and enstaller. We have found a suppliet for the Ascea 90o in our province and just need to know and ensure we can power vent down and out as discribed b/4 putting in the order.

    • Hi Ron,
      The fireplace shown here is a DL850, which can flue down and under the floor, however it is currently only available in New Zealand / Australia.

      The Escea ST900 can flue upwards and sideways, for more information on the ST900 flue with diagrams, see the installation manual which can be found here: http://www.escea.com/technical
