You may be asking yourself, OK but what does this have to do with Acucraft or fireplaces? Well, let’s back up and start where it all began!

iElements, a premier design studio in San Marino, California was awarded a new construction ultra-modern home in the Hollywood Hills. Kyle, Design Coordinator, was looking for a fireplace company to meet his design intent and after an exhaustive search he was unable to find a local resource or a guide to help him find what he was looking for. He then connected with Acucraft where he was able to work directly with a fireplace manufacturer.



Mark Kennedy, Acucraft Fireplace Advisor, worked with Kyle to determine exactly what type of gas fireplaces he was looking to add to this home, what his budget allowed, and when he would need them delivered to the site. Kyle was specifically looking for a 6′ long by 4′ tall linear see through gas fireplace for the living room, a 6′ long by 30″ tall linear see through fireplace for the master bedroom, and an 8′ linear burner for their outdoor fire pit which is centered around a living wall above the pool.

Next, Kyle worked with Robin Shepherd, Fireplace Designer, to completely design the fireboxes and burners along with confirming their flue run, gas line locations and all of the additional details that were needed to make this project a success.

Kyle then looped in his Project Manager, Brian Brookman, to co-design and approve the fireplace drawings provided by Acucraft. The iElements Design was presented with fireplace submittals for their review and approval which included: custom 3D drawings, order details, component illustrations, and installation manuals.

Upon approval, their fireplaces and burners were scheduled for production. Acucraft Project Manager, Chad Mackrell, was responsible for all coordination and delivery arrangements. The Acucraft Team worked one on one with both Kyle and Brian to ensure a successful installation. This included the 3rd Party Certification and LARR testing  requirements (specific building codes in Los Angeles)  were met.


As always the Acucraft Team kept in touch with Kyle and Brian after the installation was completed to ensure they were 100% satisfied with their fireplaces. Kyle was so pleased with his experience and the fireplaces that he shared photos and video of the fireplaces with Acucraft. It was such a pleasure working with the iElements Design Studio team, we look forward to future projects & partnerships!

This gorgeous home is currently being listed by The Agency’s own James Harris + David Parnes of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles for $14,495,000!
