Open plan design is one of the most popular elements of contemporary home design. Open plan design allows for the integration of everyday living, with combined living, kitchen and dining areas creating both a functional and aesthetically pleasing area. In addition open plan design helps to allow more natural sunlight into a space as well as creates the illusion of more space.

Despite all the benefits of open plan design for modern living, there are potential drawbacks. Poor thermal control is perhaps the biggest downside to open plan design, with the time it can take as well as the costs involved in heating these large spaces having a significant impact on power bills.

Lopi have addressed the heating needs of modern open plan design with a new double sided gas fireplace, the Lopi 4415 ST HO GS2, which provides high output without compromising on style. 

A double sided fireplace is a stunning addition to any home, instantly becoming a centrepiece that provides a ‘wow’ factor throughout multiple rooms. A huge reflective glass viewing area provides a stunning housing for the long row of dancing flames across a choice of media including realistic driftwood and stone. The flames are complemented by built-in accent lighting under the floor.

Beyond the design benefits, the flexibility of the Lopi 4415 ST HO GS2 can help to save money and space.  A combination of radiant and fan heat offers the best of both worlds, allowing large open plan areas to be heated throughout quickly and easily, while still enjoying the radiant warmth unique to a fireplace.

Dual blowers can direct heat equally to both sides of the fireplace or adjusted to blow out of just one side, allowing for the entire space to be heated when needed or saving energy and money by heating just one room if the other is not in use.

The Lopi 4415 ST HO GS2 sets a new standard in double sided gas fireplaces, with an unmatched style and performance making it the perfect addition for modern open plan design.
