Sunken fire pit inspiration

Sunken fire pit inspiration

The new pad is going to have a sunken firepit...non-negotiable. Current plan is to place it between the alfresco and the pool area - there's 4.5m from the edge of the alfresco to the intended pool fence (toward back fence) with more than enough room laterally of 15m.


Besides getting ideas for the look and feel, I'm keen to get an idea of the ideal sizing accounting for seating/benching all (or at least most) the way round and comfortable walking area around the central pit, etc.


Have you got "brick and mortar" or more of a timber look? Maybe a combo of the two (or more)? Did you go for sqaure or round firepit?




Some inspiration so far...
