This is stucco that was applied in such a way so as to achieve this look.

Very cool space. Is the fire place stone, or just a very rough stucco? I love the look.

Do you get smoke circulating in the courtyard from the fireplace? - i'm thinkng of doing the same thing. My courtyard also has a fountain on the opposing wall in the courtyard. I was told that if we use a wood burning fireplace that we would get smoke

7. High style plus high function. This lovely outdoor fireplace and courtyard are certain to draw attention from humans in search of the warmth and comfort of flame. But look at the gorgeous old-brick flooring. The designer thoughtfully focused on this vast surface area and gave it a strong role to play in the seating area. The bricks form concentric circles, with the center aligned perfectly with the fireplace. Radial symmetry is at play here — and it is like a powerful bull's eye. The floor could have been finished with the expected row upon row of brick pavers, but instead it's both functional and decorative. You can't take your eyes away!
Built-in versus freestanding. Installing an outdoor fireplace is a big project, no matter how you look at it. Before settling on a plan, think about how you envision yourself using the space. Would you prefer an outdoor room destination, or a hangout zone just a step away?

You can also build a fireplace niche on a wall that extends adjacent to your home. This is ideal if you live in an area that’s windy or with close neighbors, in order to create a more private and sheltered courtyard area.
