Contemporary farmhouse features Velo Ceiling fan by Spinifex
A Jaime Kleinert designed farmhouse set in the rolling hills of the NSW south coast has incorporated the Velo Ceiling Fan to provide an environmentally friendly cooling option to complement the farmhouse’s open plan spaces and modern feel. The home’s layout is cleverly arranged to maximise natural airflow, however during the middle of the day the house needs to be closed up to keep the worst of the summer heat out and in the evenings the coastal breeze tends to die off, at which times ceiling fans come into their own.
“The appeal of the Velo Ceiling Fan is its elegant simplicity”, says the property’s owners. “We were looking for something modern to suit the house and yet simple in form so it wasn’t too much of a statement”, she explains.
The raised ceilings of main living area also pose a warming challenge in winter. The warm air from the farmhouse’s slow combustion fireplace rises to the high point of the ceiling. Set to their winter mode the Velo Ceiling Fans gently bring the warm air back down to floor level. The mixing of the air also serves to reduce window condensation preserving the view out over the paddocks and animals.
The Ron Rezek designed Velo Ceiling Fan is one of his latest designs and is rapidly becoming a contemporary class amongst ceiling fans. It has a compact minimalist feel while housing all the components necessary for exceptional air movement. It also features a moulded resin aerodynamically shaped blade set, which is highly efficient and durable while maintaining a subtle elegance that is comfortable to have in your home.
