Fireplace Posibility (4)

After some lengthy deliberation by the clients we are now closer to a final design for the large patio fireplace discussed in previous post. This was the last post where I posted a rendering showing large storage and a more conventional firebox and stone surround.

Before that I posted the below shot:

outdoor-fireplace, fireplace-design
[Let’s focus on the bottom rendering from the sketchbook.]

The clients really like the look of the firebox and the stone surrounding it.

This look is very atypical, very atypical. In a time when more and more outdoor fireplaces are being built with fake/simulated stone(I like to call it “lick-n-stick”) creating a average generic look, this fireplace would really catch the eye.

But . . . but the wood storage is not quite what the clients are after. Especially when you compare it to other possibilities shown to them.

They referred me back to this drawing for the wood storage area.

[Please focus on the rendering at the bottom. ]

This image was also posted, it was the 1st in the series discussing this fireplace, patio, and boulder out-cropping all tied into one awesome designed space.

This means I have been asked to combine that element-the square’er’ box with some sort of arch onto the fireplace with the large more rustic stone and a more random look to the “edges”.

So what will I do? I will try and come up with something that satisfies that criteria, and if I feel that all the requested elements fit together we’ll run with it.

If I don’t.

Then I’ll show the clients the working drawings and explain my reasoning for not liking how it all “doesn’t come together”.
