How did you get a fireplace approved in San Francisco? - Unless this is a remodel of an existing fireplace, as far as I know, it's near impossible to get an open front, fire burning fireplace in a project in CA/SF.

You buy a house that already has one. PS I hear they are not approving them in SoCal anymore either on new construction.

I love this design. How did you determine the height on the wall to place the fireplace. I would like to put some stools/bench seating in front of fireplace but I am unsure of how high to put the firebox. My ceiling is two storie, framed by windows on both size.

The wall for the fireplace is 6ft by 14ft. It has 2 ft wide windows on each side floor to ceiling. I am trying to finalize size of firebox and placement. Would welcome your comments.

Would this tile be attached like tile would or would it be bolted to the wall? It looks like there is grout. Thank you.

We are trying to engineer a steel fireplace for our under construction house right now. How are the pieces attached? welded together, grinded and polished? attached to the wall behind and space left for the expansion of the steel? PS the patina is beautiful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Hearth: It Makes a House a Home
A minimal metal wall around the fire makes a strong statement.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Less Is More: 6 Principles of Minimalist Design
The luscious gray wool on these ottomans is sensual and warm in front of this minimal fireplace surround. For both the fireplace and the ottomans, the clean lines assure that the material is what you will notice.
Steel. An entire fireplace wall clad in steel has a commanding presence. The industrial feel goes hand in hand with minimalism for those who love the less-is-more look. Design idea: Applying texture to this common material during fabrication ensures a unique visual depth.
