Shanley Building worked closely with Paul Rust of Foursite Design and Megan Ekdahl Interiors to conceive the home’s sleek lines and natural palette. Industrial-style black aluminium joinery punctuates the white interior walls, framing the view.
The exterior, finished with Linea Weatherboard, blends with the surrounding pohutakawas and Norfolk pine trees and the private deck forms an extension to the already spacious kitchen and lounge area – perfect for entertaining.
Inside the house, a sense of lineal flow is immediately apparent from the decking to the stripes of the carpet. The refined lines are complemented by an Escea DL850 gas fireplace.
This vision of elegance was achieved within a reasonable budget – this Shanley Building show home proves you don't have to be at the high end of your credit limit to have high quality. The same can be said for the adorning gas fireplace. With a 4.5-star efficiency rating, the DL850 quickly heats even the largest of rooms, making it an affordable and efficient heating choice. Equipped with Escea’s Powered Direct Vent technology, the DL850’s flue runs vertically or horizontally, meaning it can be incorporated seamlessly into almost any space and the smooth Satin Black fascia paired with the white finish of the fuelbed completes the package.
The DL850 offers extraordinary design freedom. Escea’s zero clearance standard, demonstrated by the DL850, allows a television to be mounted right above the fireplace. In addition, expensive cladding materials have now become redundant; Escea’s fireplaces can be installed into any type of wall material because of their flexible installation options. Now, the client has increased design choices and is free to spend more money on their design rather than on their fireplace.
