What is the black material on the fireplace?

What a shame.. I thought Houzz was meant to give information and ideas freely. I personally am more inclined to go with a number of the architects, designers who are an open book, and help people on this site.. Just my 2c worth.

I 100% agree with you. Get your pictures off this site if you're not going to be helpful. This is not an advertising site for your firm.

Gas fireplace does not have a glass front - how do you keep the room warm with the flue open?

COASTROAD Hearth & Patio
First of all, nice project, Charles Cunniffe Architects.

There will be some radiant heat from any fire. Radiant heat travels as sub-visible light, so the area immediately in front of the fireplace will be warm. At the same time, heated room air and the exhaust from the gas burner go up the flue, so there is heat loss.

There are two solutions to this. If you must have an open front, many parts of the country allow unvented gas fireplaces, which burn cleanly enough that they can exhaust to the room. I don't necessarily recommend them, for air quality reasons, but they are a good problem solver where nothing else is possible.

There other, more preferable option in my opinion, is a direct vent gas fireplace, which will have a sealed front glass panel. It will have good efficiency and realism without the indoor air quality concerns.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This photo is taken from a similar location as the previous one, but note how the room changes with the doors to the master suite closed. Here we see Cunniffe with his kids (twin boy and girl) and a little bit of the library that is up a couple steps from the living room. The room leads to a patio on the back of the house, echoing the deck on the front.
