With all the fireplaces i did this year, decided to look back to one of my favorites from a few years ago. the clients were forced to remodel due to a house fire. they were understandably concerned with combustibility as well as heat on the tv. i designed a steel mantle to deflect the heat and be impervious to fire. i wanted to widen the space visually, so vertical lines that stretched from wall to wall were used. floating walnut slab shelves, riveted steel and terraced door fronts all came together in a one of a kind modern entertainment wall.
