Acucraft first started designing and building see through fireplaces in the 1980’s. Double sided fireplaces have been one of our most sought-after models. In fact, one third of all of our orders are see-through fireplaces!
People who enjoy fireplaces are fascinated by our see through models because they are beautiful, efficient, and can deliver 2 fireplace views! At Acucraft, we are not only (still) fascinated with them, but we also get a thrill out of designing them to our customer’s specifications, creating them ourselves, and delivering them directly to the desired location. Here are some of our favorite double sided fireplaces that we have created over the years.
1. Eduardo was building his own custom home and asked us to create a one-of-a-kind fireplace that would go between his Great Room and Dining Room. It turned out beautiful!
“It’s the best investment we did in our new construction home… Everyone loves it!” – Eduardo
2. The Hermitage Club custom wood burning fireplace was a big moment for Acucraft. The Hermitage Club was looking for a large, 4-sided, wood burning fireplace. And we delivered… The biggest see through fireplace we have ever created! After completion, the viewing window from door-to-door was 12 feet high and 12 feet wide! It needed to be dropped in through the roof with a crane!
3. When Boyd Gaming approached us, they already had fireplaces in installed at their Kansas Star Casino. Unfortunately, their fireplaces were giving off too much heat for their guests and had barely any flame to show for it. We were happy to replace their fireplaces with ones that have Acucraft’s massive flame and are able to vent outdoors so everyone is comfortable.
4. This particular customer was really excited to have an exposed flue. We thought it was a fabulous idea! They also loved the idea of a double sided fireplace providing views from the living room and the dining room. It turned out wonderfully, we love the exposed flue!
5. Matt wanted to create a large, see through, wood-burning fireplace that could be enjoyed in multiple rooms. He was also seeking a fireplace that would create comfortable heat and have a rustic look to match his d√©cor. We were pleased to know that we were able to bring another customer’s idea to life!
6. Smart home technology, breathtaking views, Italian marble, French limestone, and NanaWall retractable glass walls are only a few of the extraordinary features of this modern contemporary hideaway in the Haven Hill neighborhood of Tiburon, CA. They also wanted a see through Acucraft fireplace from the master bedroom into the bathroom to accompany all the amazing features of this home! They loved their new fireplace so much they preceded to order a custom gas, 4-sided fireplace as well!
7. We recently had the chance to give back by sitting down with five sophomores from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. What the students didn’t realize was that Acucraft actually built a fireplace for the University of Minnesota Rec Center! They had even seen the fireplace in person during a tour of our facility and were excited to know that one of our products had made its way into the University.
8. Davidoff Cigar Lounge was looking for a fireplace with lazy, relaxing flames that could be seen throughout the space because, after all, you can’t have cigars without fire! This gorgeous fireplace really completed the room and added desired ambiance to the space.
9. We received rough sketches from Klai Juba Architects for a double sided fireplace that would be placed outdoors of a casino. Although it appeared to be a fairly simple project, the location of the fireplace required the flue to be vented under the floor. Acucraft was able to make this work and the fireplace fulfilled the vision cast by the designers and architects, adding to the overall experience in the casino and steakhouse.
10. Melzer, Deckert + Ruder, Architects, Inc. came to us looking for a unique focal point for the entry lobby at the Palomar Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. The architects came up with an exceptional design, something that Acucraft had never worked with before. This was one of our most unique designs and is now one of our favorites!
Anyone can see that see through fireplaces are amazing! Although these are our favorites, these are just some of the fireplaces we have created and designed specifically for our customers. Check our galleries for more inspiration for your next fireplace project!
