Outdoor Fire Space above by Conard Romano Architects
The beautiful open ceiling pictured below is a real stunner! Massive crown mouldings extend upword to a
spectacular beamed and coffered ceiling. Contrasting with the fine woodwork on the ceiling are stone walls
with a cozy stone corner fireplace integrated into the design. An abundance of lush vegetation in pots and
planters softens the stone surfaces in this in-
credible outdoor room!
The fireplace pictured below, left, with a cast stone mantel and raised hearth, extends upward to a beamed sloping ceiling. Handsome brick arches provide access to this traditionally styled outdoor fire space.
Contrasting with this is the modern design pictured below, right. Simple beadboard covers the ceiling above a contemporary style stone outdoor fireplace that is open on three sides.
Moving from "contemporary" to "rus-
tic" is the striking gazebo style patio design pictured at right. Intricately handcrafted log work in the ceiling contrasts beautifully with the rug-
ged stone fireplace that anchors this structure.
The rustic design that follows with its majestic mountain views is by one of America's premier architectural
design firms, Locati Architects, based in Bozeman, Montana. A striking stacked stone fireplace and
ing are sheltered by a steeply pitched roof and finely handcrafted wood working.
Traditionally styled stone fireplaces anchor the two covered patio designs that follow. While the ceiling
design pictured below, right, is fairly straight-
forward, the design on the left is much more elaborate. Utilizing a series of angles and curves that rise higher and higher, the upper level wall and ceil-
ing are pierced by a dramatic postmodern Palladian arch.
The covered patio design that follows features Craftsman Style detailing. French doors flank a natural bluestone fireplace.
The striking patio design pictured below combines a tantalizing array of building materials in contrasting sizes, shapes, patterns, textures and colors to form a visually appealing whole. Darkly stained beadboard lines the ceiling above a light-colored brick wall and stone arch fireplace design in a random ashlar pattern. A contrasting natural stone floor completes the composition.
For a more exotic look, colored or printed canvas fabric can be at-
tached to framing erected above
the patio, as shown in the exam-
ple over the stone fireplace pic-
tured at right.
And finally, the enchanting evening scene that follows features a patio ar-
ea with a beamed ceiling. A formal mantelpiece made of light-colored cantera stone is juxtaposed against a backdrop of dark, roughly textured wall stone veneer. Stone tiles cover the floor of this intimate outdoor room.
