The above image is the completed Custom Multi-Sided Gas Fireplace located in the Voice of Evangelism (VOE) in Tennessee. VOE’s Architect contact Acucraft and requested a custom fireplace design that would be located in a circular room being viewed from all angles.
The drawing below was the original vision VOE had presented to Acucraft’s Design Team. Acucraft Fireplaces enjoys working directly with the customer, Architect and Designer to create a unique one of a kind fireplace. We called it theCollaborative Design Process. Acucraft Design Team reviewed the vision from VOE and presented three different options with pricing. This blog tells the story of the VOE / Acucraft Collaborative Design Process.
VOE’s initial fireplace concept drawing
The original design concept was to have a round fireplace with round glass panes. Through discovery calls between Acucraft and VOE via WebEx, VOE decided they would be interested in receiving three different concepts from Acucraft.
With option two and three meeting the construction budget, VOE decided to proceed with these design options. The Acucraft design team began bringing the two designs to life, which you will see below.
4 – Sided Custom Design Concept
8 – Sided Custom Design Concept
After further collaboration with VEO on the 4-Sided and 8-Sided Custom Design concepts, a decision was made to move forward with the 8-Sided Custom Designed Gas Fireplace.
Once Acucraft’s Design Team receives approval from the client on submitted drawings, our fireplace designers create a complete set of shop drawings for our fabrication team. All Acucraft fireplaces are built on site by skilled welders and metal craftsmen.
Below you will see the 8-Sided Custom Design Gas Fireplace in the making.
Acucraft internally tests every fireplace prior to shipping.

All Acucraft Fireplaces have the fireplace gas control externally mounted to keep a clean look around the fireplace.
Through the Collaborative Design Process, Acucraft was able to present VOE with a Custom Multi-Sided Gas Fireplace that was able to exceed the customers expectations while meeting there construction budget.

"We have enjoyed our Z-Max fireplace since 2008. We often have power outages, sometimes days at a time, here in the rural West Virginia Appalachian Mountains. Our Z-Max heats our 1,700 square foot ranch home in very cold conditions. We are grateful for a reliable source of heat! Thank you for an excellent product!"
