It was a basic metal fireplace box. We wrapped the flue with stainless steel. The window is simply in the wall behind the flue. If you look closely you can see the flue inside.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Unique Chimneys, Outside and Inside
This very modern house features a chimney that rises halfway up the large, double-height glass facade, giving way to a flue that pops above the parapet. The whole is carefully composed, down to the window within the chimney.
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.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to White Delights on Home Exteriors of All Styles
The International style still continues in homes today. Rational, cool and looking machine made, these white boxes provide a sharp contrast to the natural world and, in the process, celebrate the modern age.More: Help! What Color Should I Paint My House?
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: The Birth of Modern Architecture
International European architects of the 1920s and 1930s adopted a philosophy of no ornamentation, and all elements served only functional purposes. The beauty of a building was to be achieved by the exactness of machine-finished materials and structural transparency. For the first time, exterior walls were not structural and were labeled curtain walls. The structure (usually steel) occurred on the interior of the building, and supports were placed to allow as much freedom as possible for interior configuration. Seen in this house is a sharply executed arrangement of elements. The chimney is a floating cylinder, the walls above the windows appear to float, and the forms appear to enclose indoor as well as outdoor spaces. Windows are grouped or stretched in long rows, and razor-thin supports define separation.
John Hill added this to Curtain Wall
Curtain walls are used primarily in tall office buildings as well as in multifamily and institutional buildings. Yet they are also found in houses, primarily modern ones of at least two floors.

International The name of a major architectural style that is said to have emerged in the 1920s and 1930s, the formative decades of modern architecture, as first defined by Americans Henry-Russell Hitchcock and Philip Johnson in 1932, with an emphasis more on architectural style, form and aesthetics than the social aspects of the modern movement as emphasised in Europe
