Fire Features, a division of our parent company Colombo Construction Corp., is a full service design & build firm, owned by Elena Colombo, that specializes in custom, site-specific work, including firebowls, water & wind features, memorials, markers, and environmental sculpture.

Our work in bronze, steel, stone, concrete and bone extends architecture further into the landscape by creating forms that are at once ancient and modern, simple and elegant, and which provide a way to satisfy our deep need to interact with the elements.

Customization We work with you to create the perfect installation that will adorn your outdoor space, whether it be creating new plans for you, or executing plans you provide to us.

Pricing varies based on materials, size, technical options, and installation. Refer to our general pricing guide. Or call us for a custom quote 212-334-5069.

In 2001, when faced with a stockpile of damp wood, Elena Colombo made her first propane fueled firebowl using a repurposed garbage can retrofitted with a simple burner, and Fire Features’ signature “flip-switch” firebowls were born. Shortly after this prototype, hotelier Andre Balazs commissioned firebowls for his Shelter Island and Miami hotels, and for his private residence in New York. Jonathan Adler commissioned one for the Parker Palm Springs hotel, Lisa Marie Presley purchased two for her California estate, and the landmark Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood installed ten custom firebowls around the pool.

In response to the growing demand, Fire Features was established in 2004 as a full-service design atelier, and we have expanded our line to include dozens of unique fire and water feature designs, the gelled alcohol Mini-Series, and a series of memorials, markers and reliquaries. Our custom features also have been installed at Pebble Beach Golf Resorts; The St. Regis, Park City; The Lodge at Cordillera; and Alpha Omega Winery, Paul Hobbs Winery, Press Restaurant, and Solage Resort in Napa Valley.

In 2004, our firebowl was nominated for “Best Outdoor Product” by the Design and Decoration Awards. In 2008, Australian horticulturalist Jamie Durie showcased one as the centerpiece in his gold medal winning show garden in the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show. And in 2010 Fire Features was selected to design and construct a monumental installation, “The Bridge”, at SteelStacks for the Bethlehem Steel revitalization project – our first public commission funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and ArtsQuest of Bethlehem, PA.
