Bromic Heating in Australia’s Best Homes
For David Saunders, leveraging the potential in the outdoor area of his recently redeveloped home in St Kilda, Melbourne was always an important consideration – especially so given his role as both home owner and director of the architectural practice, S2 Design, which was in charge of the renovations.
“We always wanted to have an outdoor heater here because Melbourne’s climate is so varied,” David says as he gazes over the intimate courtyard space. “You know, you have a BBQ, temperature drops down and then everybody races inside or they go home,” he continues, “and this [David points to the Platinum Smart-Heat™ Gas heater perched above] enables us to use this outdoor dining area all year round, all day, all night.”
“We’ve loved the Platinum Smart-Heat™ from the first day we saw it. We’ve been recommending it to all of our clients and using it on all of our projects ever since.”
Absorbing the décor of this home, it’s obvious that a modern, sustainable theme informs every aspect, from the construction materials used to David’s selection of appliances. Referring specifically to the Platinum Smart-Heat™ Gas heater in the courtyard, he explains that “one of the things we really like about this unit is it has a very subtle aesthetic. It doesn’t take away from the architecture at all, but when you do focus on it, it is a very elegant element in itself.”
With its sleek lines and ultra-modern construction, the Platinum Smart-Heat™ Gas has been designed to be a sophisticated accompaniment to any family home or commercial venue. But just as S2 Design considers aesthetics and sustainability equally in their projects, so too have Bromic Heating matched style with substance. As David illustrates, “one of the reasons this unit works so well is the radiant heating that it produces, which stops the heat from simply blowing away and allows the unit to more effectively heat the area.”
Having just had his home featured on Channel Seven’s Australia’s Best Houses and with a particularly cold Melbourne winter behind him, it’s easy to see why David is happy with the results. “We’ve always loved the Platinum Smart-Heat ever since the first day we saw it,” he concludes. “We’ve been recommending it to all of our clients and using it on all our projects ever since. So I knew that when I was building my home, that was the heater I wanted.”
