Home Entertainment Center with Custom Fireplace
One prevalent design trend is the placement of an entertainment screen over a fire feature or fireplaces. This may seem like a visual contradiction with flames below distracting from what is happening on the screen yet, if designed properly can make for a stunning residential or commerical entertainment setting.
The owner of the project shown requested a nine foot linear fire feature to go beneath an equally large screen. This was being installed into a 500 square foot room with an eight foot ceiling. For this project, the VGF custom team has to serviously consider issues regarding heat.
VGF designed an extra layer of heat barrier material to make certain minimal heat would be radiated off the top off of the body up into the screen installation. As extra measures, we made sure to have the contractor install insulation directly above the unit.
