A combination of fire, water, metal and stone inspired a truly original design for this Melbourne, Australia holiday home. The sunny glass house channels the tranquil energy emitted by the natural materials within. At the heart of the home, this master builder from Platform created a floating concrete centrepiece with a frameless gas log fire with a heat ducting system to heat the 30m long, open plan rooms with 4m high ceilings.
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.
Our Powered Direct Vent Technology gives you the flexibility to place your fire almost anywhere you wish. A fireplace in the middle of the room – why not? Run a flue under the floor. Horizontal or vertical installation – No worries!

When it comes to purchasing a fire, it seems like a straight forward decision. However, thanks to modern day technology there is more to ‘The Fire’ than ever before. That’s where our Multiroom Technology comes into play. First of all, we have this luxurious DX Series fireplace, but in addition it comes with this fab feature: Multiroom. So now you are wondering:
What is Multiroom?
Why should I have it?
Where does it go?
And… How does it work?
Well then, let’s get down to business.
We’re so excited to let you know that we’re going to be at NZ’s largest build and construction expo: BuildNZ DesignEX Canterbury.
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.
Our team at Escea has carefully selected a new fuel bed to complement any rustic, minimalist or modern interior design. Our Woodland Selection captures the pure essence of nature. Composed of branches, pine cones and shale, this selection offers an authentic native presence alongside the understated beauty of the DX Series.
