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.
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.
The Escea DX Series fireplaces are not only popular with architects and clients but also have caught the eye of the best designers and stylists – both in New Zealand and also globally.
