The last element in our 1950 home to be remodeled was an incredible three-sided fireplace separating our dining room from our living room. As an Architect and the homeowner, I struggled with how to modernize this feature. When we purchased the house the fireplace was covered in brass, and had glass doors on all sides.

The new installation is a real conversation piece. Although our fireplace season is short in Miami Beach, we still use it during the warmer months. The mesmerizing glow adds the perfect ambiance while entertaining guests. The new space incorporates a buffet and cabinetry, a shelf, and a striking linear fireplace.

Some of the materials used to build this installation include:
• Variegated crystal white quartz tile
• A granite buffet top
• A fireplace pedestal
• A mantle and shelf
• A walnut wood veneer for the new buffet cabinetry and storage areas.

The look is clean and modern but also very comforting and approachable, just a fireplace should be.
