Finding the right fit.

1. Make a Connection
Maximize both style and warmth with a dual-sided fireplace between adjoining rooms. A custom fireplace in a modern home in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills nestles neatly between the master bedroom and bathroom, connecting both spaces without sacrificing privacy.
The stone-rimmed rectangular design provides a counterpoint to the bedroom’s oval walls and bathroom’s inviting sculptural tub. The architect and homeowners wanted a very open, transitional design for their home and wanted to incorporate that feeling with a custom see through fireplace.
2. Bridge Your Home and Yard
Enjoy your fireplace indoors and out with a custom indoor outdoor fireplace. As seen in this home in Tampa, Florida, a dual-sided fireplace brightens both the poolside deck and the family room inside.
With removable glass and firescreen, this Signature Series fireplace can be enjoyed open (no glass with firescreen) or sealed (with glass) depending on your mood. Protect precious hands from a hot fire with a sealed viewing area, or provide an inviting space for guests with a traditional open-hearth viewing area. The choice is literally at your fingertips.
3. Capitalize on the View
Whether you’re separating your family room from your dining room, or maximizing a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, with a see through (double sided) or all glass fireplace, you can enjoy the ambiance of a fireplace without obstructing your view.
Surround a central fireplace with glass to enjoy the scenery beyond, like the residential developers chose to do with this gorgeous open floorplan home overlooking San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge.
