Hi im looking for a 4 faced wood fire place to put in my new contemporary house.
May 11, 2012
Does anyone have an idea for me ? The fire place will be viewed from the living room, familly room and dining room.

Thanks in advance !

All ideas excepted :) Peg

Here's one. It's not super contemporary, but with a different stone or finish on it, it could be.

I like Emily's idea, which can be customized with your choice of materials.

Multi-sided fireplaces can be problematic, and practically all 4-sided fireplaces are custom-built because of the relatively low demand for them.

The challenge is to get a woodburning fireplace to draw properly in a tight, modern home. A fireplace with large openings requires a fairly great volume of free air to allow for the smoke to rise up through the chimney. If you go ahead with the idea, I'd suggest working with your heating and air conditioning designer/contractor to make sure sufficient "make-up" air is available so your fireplace will work properly.

If you are the least bit interested in getting some heat efficiency out of it, you'll probably need to compromise and get a two-sided see-through instead of the four-sided. This is the only EPA-rated multi-sided wood burning fireplace available: http://www.supremem.com/opus_see-through_fireplace.php

Here is a super-custom 4-sided fireplace . . . I'm working on locating the source for you.
