Modernist rural design
There is no doubt, the construction barbecues are the queens of the garden and that is evident in the evolution of their designs. Beyond the material used, beyond its usefulness, even beyond its mobility, the work barbecues have become decorative pieces that give a touch of style and distinction to your garden. These ‘statues of exteriors’ stand majestically in any corner but their discretion does not exempt them from being one of the most coveted pieces by visitors. Do not you like the sinuosity of the lines combined with the simple but elegant design of this barbecue?
The evolution of barbecues
A couple of bricks, a good fire, a grill and desire to eat was the only thing that was once needed to enjoy an outdoor barbecue. Much has changed the story since then and, the traditional ‘chascas’ have evolved to turn these barbecues into authentic pieces of art at the service of all kinds of diners. Fireplace, oven, grill and enough space for firewood, utensils and kitchen make this barbecue a clear exponent of that evolution.
Brick seen, the traditional choice
The brick used is one of the most used materials in the construction barbecues. Due to its characteristics it is ideal to survive the inclement weather and, combined with other materials or coatings, it is perfect to be part of the furniture of the garden or the terrace. From simple compositions to more complex ones, like this barbecue that has a fireplace, grill and stove and even a space to store wood, it offers a world of possibilities.
The choice of material that we will use in the construction of our work barbecue is one of the most relevant issues to consider when incorporating this element to our terrace or garden . Although, as we mentioned, is among the favorites, the stone is another recommended component to give life to our barbecue. Its natural resistance to the passage of time and weather changes can make your work barbecue enjoyed for generations.
