Two Foot Ten Foot was brought on the project by Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects to help design and fabricate two nonpareil fireplaces with large organically-shaped chimneys and custom fabricated gas log sets. The fireplaces serve as the centerpiece of a community center lodge, itself the epicenter of an amazing new park on the banks of the Arkansas River nearby downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. The striking lodge design culminates at the custom gas log set with 360 degree views. An identical gas log set sits one floor below and outside under a roof to give patrons a warm place to sit on cold days. Free flowing stone chimney shapes reach up to exhaust the burnt gases out of the building.
9 North - Commercial Office Lobby
Two Foot Ten Foot worked closely with local Portland firm, Hacker Architects, to develop a warm and inviting lobby fireplace. The code-variant fireplace design was site tested by a fireplace certification laboratory to prove function and safety for the local AHJ. A conical steel cover hides a fan and long flue run that travels up to the ceiling before turning 90-degrees and exhausting out the side of the building. A custom steel round hearth seat surrounds the gas log set and serves as a great way to warm your backside on those rainy northwest nights.
Lake Champlain Residence
Traditional wood-burning fireplaces with a modern twist
We were approached by traditional Architecture firm, G.P. Schafer, to design two wood-burning fireplaces that would function safely and draft well with horizontal flue runs and minimal fan noise. We designed the fireplaces and chimney systems with extensive safety devices to avoid spilling smoke from a wood-burning fire while maintaining our client’s desire for fireplaces that look traditional, but are anything but underneath the surface.
The Barnes Museum
Consultation for Resolution
We were contacted by the architect and designers for the renovation of the Barnes Museum to consult on a dysfunctional gas fireplace. The custom linear burner that was installed in the outdoor fireplace was not drafting properly and causing damage to the ornate custom firebox tiles. We worked with the architect and designers of the existing dysfunctional fireplace to develop functional design solutions for the fireplace and gas burner system. We were successful in re-designing the firebox and burner system which resulted in equal flame distribution and a fireplace which exhausts properly.
Martha's Vineyard Home
Wood-Burners in the Vineyard
Two Foot Ten Foot Fireplaces was contacted by premier architecture firm, Robert A.M. Stern, to design and supply material for six traditionally-styled wood burning masonry fireplaces. The design criteria included complicated flue runs with multiple offsets which use only natural draft to expel smoke from wood-burning fires. We provided the project with custom fabricated flue components to snake flues around tight corners and built-in drains to accommodate the wet coastal environment.
Southampton Beach House
A Modern Hamptons Beach Side Retreat
In the Hamptons almost every property is stunning, but this new modern home designed by Sawyer Berson sets a dramatic stage for sunrises and sunsets. We helped design and fabricate a large steel fireplace frame which houses a custom burner and creates the illusion of a floating fireplace hearth. Laid over the top of the burner are custom-made coals which help to create an interesting flame pattern and glow red hot, adding a touch of drama to an already impactful space.
