This month in our fire pit feature project we have Marlene Lento Design Studio. Marlene designs gardens in Kent and East Sussex. Her designs range from traditional to contemporary with an emphasis on creating outdoor living spaces that are usable and beautiful throughout the seasons:

We are focussing on a recent project that Marlene undertook for a client in Otford, Kent.  When discussing the client brief with Marlene it was simply to design a spectacular entertainment area at the top of their steep garden overlooking the Kent countryside. Looking at the end result she certainly fulfilled the brief and more!  A garden of this nature needs the help of a designer to realise its true potential and really give it the wow factor, which Marlene has definitely done with her design.

In order to fulfil the brief  Marlene designed two circular decks that are set into the slope, one of which is a lounge area and the other a dance floor! The centre piece of the lounge area is a large Solus fire bowl which is surrounded by cosy upholstered outdoor furniture. A cantilevered heater adds further warmth making it a year-round destination. The elaborate lighting scheme and mature planting, some of which were helicoptered into the garden create real impact and luxury within this Kent garden.

Marlene has incorporated our Hemi fire bowl with gas connection and drinks ring.  The gas pipework has been carefully concealed beneath the decking; a key part of the planning process and something that we are on hand to help with along with any technical questions.

We are thrilled to be a part of this fantastic garden transformation. Get in touch with Marlene Lento Design Studio to see how she can help with your garden project.

Feature Project: The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells

We have had the great fortune of teaming up with The Spa Hotel to help create this wonderful outdoor space in the historic town of Tunbridge Wells.

The Spa Hotel is set in 14 acres of beautiful grounds close to the centre of  historic Royal Tunbridge Wells, the spa town from which its name is derived. The hotel first opened in 1880 and since then has built a reputation for style, sophistication, relaxation and fine dining.

The Spa Hotel has a long-established history in the town, and with its recent refurbishment it provides a luxurious location to stay, dine and for weddings and events. With 70 rooms, an award-winning restaurant and a new, contemporary  Bar and Brasserie, there is plenty for guests to enjoy.

As part of the refurbishment of the hotel, The Spa Hotel have just launched the Spa Temple and new outdoor entertainment area. The Spa Temple is a beautiful piece of design from our friends at Chilstone, providing a focal point in this picturesque outdoor setting and a wonderful place to say “I do”.

We are thrilled to see our Hemi fire pit with metal drinks ring incorporated into this quintessential British countryside setting. The Hemi is our signature fire pit and is popular in both commercial and residential settings.  The Spa Hotel have incorporated the Hemi into the new Temple.  The sculptural curves of the Hemi mirror the architectural curves of the Temple.

The Hemi is available in three sizes, twelve different colours and a choice of three different fuel options; including natural gas, LPG and Biothenol making it adaptable for any outdoor setting. We also have a range of accessories to customise your fire pit including the metal drinks ring at the Spa Hotel.
