Pond House

The interior of the wharf cottage appears boat like and clad in tongue and groove Douglas fir. A small galley kitchen sits at the far end right. Nearby an open serving island, dining area and living area are all open to the soaring ceiling and custom fireplace.

The fireplace consists of a 12,000# monolith carved to received a custom gas fireplace element. The chimney is cantilevered from the ceiling. The structural steel columns seen supporting the building from the exterior are thin and light. This lightness is enhanced by the taught stainless steel tie rods spanning the space.

Hi and thanks for your question. The fireplace, burner, boulder, chimney and cowling are a custom design.

Hi, thanks for your question and my apologies for the delayed reply. The columns are part of the structural system that supports the cottage fabricated using stainless steel in a brushed finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Playing With Fire
Oversize and minimize. Here a custom-designed gas fireplace burner has been incised into a 12,000-pound granite boulder. The stainless steel chimney cowling cantilevered from the roof structure, while oversize, is delicate and light when viewed against the size and sheer mass of the hearth object. The fire hovers between the machined steel fireplace “container” and the organic rough-textured rock.
