Keep the glass box glass. On the outside the metal chimney remains the vertical totem it has always been. But now the glass wall can span up, over and in front of the chimney. There's no need to have a chimney that breaks up and separates the elevation into pieces.
Avoid architectural features. The flue can also bend and be rerouted to avoid architectural features such as overhangs. Again (this can't be stressed enough), follow the building codes and manufacturer specifications when doing any chimney installation.
Bring it inside. These types of chimneys aren't just for exterior wall applications. Metal chimneys are ideal design elements for two-sided fireplaces, where they help keep the interior spaces more open and connected. This interior wouldn't be nearly as open, bright and spacious with a boxy chimney rising up from the fireplace.
