Let’s take a closer look at one of our client’s journey with Living Flame gas fireplaces. We’ll show you how we transformed their vision into a stunning reality.

Bringing ideas to life with Living Flame

When our client decided to remodel their house into a show-stopping home, their architects,, recommended to get in touch with us at Living Flame. Intrigued by the idea of creating something truly unique, they reached out to our talented team.

Firstly, our client needed a statement focal point for the living room. The capivating Eastside 1500 Vista gas fireplace with an exposed flue was the perfect solution for it. Next, to elevate the outdoor entertainment area, we installed the versatile Chef 1500 Cook-on gas fireplace on the covered deck.

However, the most challenging aspect of the project was the transformation of the existing wood fire and chimney in the Media Room.

Inspired by a Pinterest image, our client desired a similar aesthetic but with the convenience and modern touch of a gas fireplace. Although they had a fondness for traditional fires, the style and additional timber-work made it impractical. Ultimately, we decided that an open gas fire would be the perfect solution.

Collaboration and Craftsmanship

Living Flame collaborated with Dan Ross from Kevin Ross Builders to construct the fireplace cavity. Using a combination of timber, cement board and 50mm Hebel, we created a fully functioning, non-combustible chimney. Dan’s dedication, expertise and research on Hebel usage, ensured a seamless execution of the project. Next, the entire chimney breast was enveloped in exquisite marble sheets, both inside and out, adding a touch of timeless elegance to the space.

To enhance the visual impact, Living Flame designed a custom Basket and black steel back panel, introducing an element of contrast. The end result surpassed our client’s initial inspiration, making it one of the most rewarding projects we have had the privilege to work on.
