Indoor Fireplace Inspiration

With the New Zealand Autumn now upon us, we've pulled together our top 3 coziest spaces that feature an indoor fireplace as the burning heart of the home. Enjoy.

Above: The iconic Waterfall Bay home of Michael Seresin, designed by Bossley Architects in Auckland. 

"Located in a remote bay in the Marlborough Sounds, this house emphasises the intimate qualities of the small bay. Set close to the water it runs along the contour as a two storey primary element incorporating living areas above and guest rooms below." Learn more about this incredible home at:

Finally, a personal favourite, the Forest Home above, was designed by Auckland architects Fearon Hay. Worthy of wining a Residential Architecture Gold Pin in  the Designers Institute Best Awards. Fearon Hay's clever inclusion of both indoor and outdoor fireplaces within many of their projects is inspiring. Learn more here:
