Detail in design even of a roof reveals a great deal about the home dwellers
Chimneys are usually not the center of a builder’s and architect’s focus, the reason being: except for birds and chimney sweeps – no one really sees much of them. But let us take a closer look in our photo-gallery, which we dedicated to the subject after finding a number of pictures worth a second look on the Norsk Skifer Website.
Perhaps intricately designed chimneys are a metaphoric smoke signal. The message: aesthetics and style are important.
Further on, photos of the chimney’s journey downward to ground level.
In a subsequent issue we will report in detail how a chimney turns into a fireplace.
Norsk Skifer is a cooperative of five Norwegian slate-producing companies sharing a marketing platform: Alta Skiferbrudd, Liskifer, Minera, Oppdal Sten and Palmer Gotheim Skiferbrudd. The website is supported by Innovasjon Norge (Norwegian Innovation).
