46 & York, a restaurant located in one of Auckland’s most iconic heritage buildings in Parnell, was in need of some real warmth and ambience when Dana Johnston became the owner.
Virginia Fisher, a well-known interior designer credited as 'Lodge Designer' due to her involvement in fit-outs of Huka Lodge, Kauri Cliffs, Wharekauhau and Eichards Hotel, was consulted to work her magic on the restaurant. She suggested that a fire from The Fireplace would enhance the décor and provide more than enough heat for patrons.
Installed in 2014, the Stovax Riva Studio 2 was chosen on a number of merits; it features the very latest clean burn combustion systems allowing logs to burn with outstanding efficiency (resulting in more heat delivered into the room and less going up the flue), comes with a host of innovative design features and is the perfect blend of functionality and visual appeal.
"The Stovax is a beautiful roaring fire enhancing the ambience and giving wonderful heat to my restaurant in winter – and it's a real wood fire with real flames," says Dana Johnston.
The simplistic form of the Riva Studio fire range belies the high levels of engineering and technical innovation that keeps this range at the forefront of twenty first century fire design.
Stovax’s dedication to the development of premium quality fireplaces over the past 30 years has helped to make it one of Europe's leading specialist manufacturers. Now the company's expertise has brought wood burning technology to the very pinnacle of performance and design with the Riva Studio.
