Delia Bellaby from Design & Make Architects wanted to create something truly spectacular, an outdoor fireplace built as an additional feature to the captivating house.
The challenge was the chimney design. Aesthetically it would sit to the side of the fireplace, a visually stunning feature but it presented a challenge when optimising the draw of smoke up from the firebox.
If there's too sharp an angle in the chimney flue the smoke will build up and if not drawn effectively it will push smoke out of the firebox and into the entertaining area creating a terrible experience for the clients.
The solution was to create a hidden 'kinked' chimney flue that darts upwards and right at a 45 degree angle. This allows the visual perception of a side-mounted chimney whilst allowing for the smoke to be drawn up and away from the entertaining area.
