Dave Dwyer came to Acucraft seeking a heat producing wood fireplace. His future log cabin would be located in Meeker, CO which presents cold weather and frequent power outages because of its remote location. A large peninsula wood fireplace would, not only be an amazing focal point for this beautiful home, but would also heat the entire home with or without power.
Ambiance is defined as the character and atmosphere of a space. A wood fireplace can also be defined as such. By creating your own unique design, you can represent your space in a wood fireplace focal point. These are just some examples of custom wood fireplace designs that we have created in the past. The see-through wood fireplace has been featured in a magazine and combined modern with rustic elements perfectly. The peninsula wood fireplace is the focal point in an ultra-modern home. And the circular indoor wood fire pit is in a palace in Qatar that features beautiful and unique curved architecture.

Executive Affiliates, Inc. came to us while working on the Prairie Winds Apartment project. Prairie Winds of St. Charles, a rental community, was designed and built to be the new premier apartment complex in Illinois. Prairie Winds offers 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments with high-end finishes: stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, open-concept floor plans, and attached garages. In order to mirror these amenities throughout the apartments, Executive Affiliates asked Acucraft to create a truly unique fire feature for the new building’s lobby.

To keep in sync with the open-concept within the apartments, the fire feature they sought would need to be seen throughout the lobby but also not intercept the view. The Infinity6 Dual fit the bill: 4 sides of clean, glass-on-glass with no support, modern design with media and glass cooling, and a combination of 2 connected burners to create the tallest and fullest flames on the market. This 4-sided gas fireplace is crafted for safety and is made with commercial-grade components. The ultra-modern design is perfect for this amenity-driven apartment complex.

Prairie Winds Apartment, located in St. Charles, is set between multiple ponds and a beautiful wetland. Although the luxury apartments are located within walking distance to popular bars and restaurants, you don’t have to go far to get something to eat! Prairie Winds offers a free juice and coffee, a world-class fitness center, heated pool with locker room, and more! The Infinity6 Dual Fireplace fits perfectly in the lobby near the apartment Caf√©. Enjoy your coffee and snacks with a view of majestic flames no matter where you sit in the lobby.
