If you’re looking to make a statement with a fire, the Escea DX series comes with the option of choosing a double-sided model. As well as creating a dramatic focal point, these see-through models can turn two rooms into one, allowing the warmth and light of flames to be visible in multiple locations.
See-through fireplaces create a harmonious flow from one space into another and enable you to look right through your fire into the next room, creating an airy and open feel and keeping the fireplace light and bright.
The perfect addition to any contemporary floor plan, a double-sided fire makes an elegant room-divider. If you can’t decide which room to put your fire in, if you have a space where two rooms have been knocked into one, or if you want to split a large room into smaller, more intimate spaces, a double-sided fire is the ideal choice.
Another welcome use for a double-sided fire is to optimise the view to outdoors. A see-through fire will be a source of radiant heat, while allowing the view to be seen through the fireplace.
Something else to consider is the idea of a double-sided indoor fireplace creating a sense of indoor – outdoor flow. By installing a double-sided fire into an exterior wall, the flames can be enjoyed indoors as well as while you are entertaining in your outdoor living space.
See-through fireplaces are the perfect design feature to include in a restaurant or commercial space, providing the warm ambience of flames with a contemporary edge. An example of a see-through fire as a design feature in a restaurant setting is at Saggio di Vino, which recently reopened in its new location in the Carlton Butchery building on Victoria Street in Christchurch.
