For centuries fire has been the central element around which humans have gathered. From the time of its discovery, people have assembled around a fire for warmth and for safety, to prepare food and to eat. And while modern life has provided us comforts unimaginable to our ancestors, our intrigue with fire and reasoning for gathering around it are resolute. Fire elements in the landscape become the place to decompress and converse, share a glass of wine or s’mores. Fire adds intimacy and drama to an outdoor space. An opportunity that is lost without its presence.
Modern fire features are constructed of masonry and dry laid applications and can utilize wood or gas as their fuel.
