Warm nights spent sitting outside with friends are just around the corner—so sit back, relax, and get inspired by these charming outdoor fireplaces and fire pits. Today we show you 10 Modern Fireplaces and Fire Pits to Inspire Outdoor Living!
1. A Vacation Home With Sweeping Ocean Views in Big Sur, California
“The house’s two main façades express both shelter and exposure. On the north, clear expanses of glass reveal ocean and coastline views; long strips of translucent channel glass dapple the light, playing on the sea’s shimmering surface. The south façade, clad in copper, which wraps over the roof, is mostly enclosed, offering a retreat from the forces of nature. Roof overhangs on the east and west protect the windows and the front door from the harshness of sun and wind,” says the architect.

2. Serene Prefab Cabins on Vashon Island, Washington
The prefab cabins on site were designed by Seattle–based architecture firm SHW, manufactured in Idaho, and installed by local contractors from Cascade Built. Here, a shared courtyard features a fire pit.

3. A Renovated California Beach House in Ventura Keys, California
“The home is special because it feels curated but very personal,” the interior designer says. “The owners had a hand in every part of the process.” The colours in the outdoor space match those found inside, including the red lumbar pillow from Amber Interiors that’s also in a bedroom.

5. The Cabin With a Roof That Doubles as an Observation Deck in Sandefjord, Norway
A west-facing concrete terrace with a fire pit encourages outdoor enjoyment day or night. “It is vital that these outdoor rooms are sheltered from the wind, so in this project, the building itself forms a sheltering screen,” write the architects.

The wraparound porch is enclosed in custom unfinished spruce, and match the slated look of the World Market chairs. The owner says that her custom concrete fire pit has been a great place to entertain.

7. An Angular Mountain Retreat in Snowmass, Colorado
By carefully crafting both indoor and outdoor spaces, the architects managed to draw the scenic landscape inward while extending the outdoor living experience. Social areas like the living, dining, kitchen, bar, den, outdoor deck, fire pit and barbecue area are located on the second level.

8. A Courtyard House Built for Retirement in Greenwater, Washington
A fireplace can be used on the rear patio and in the living room, making it feel like one cohesive space. Ipe planks, the same wood that’s used in the front courtyard, cover the floor.

10. A Luxurious, Stone-and-Glass Retreat in New Zealand
Constructed predominantly with locally quarried stone, steel poured concrete floors and a turf roof, the horizontal outline of the property harmonizes beautifully with its rugged natural surroundings. The house also has an outdoor terrace with a pool and fireplace, where you can enjoy a cup of tea and take in plenty of fresh air.
