Georgetown Apartment on High Street
Washington DC
Designer: Contemporaria Georgetown
Designer: Deborah Kalkstein
Photographer: Stacy Zarin

Working with our client our goal was to create a cozy and inviting space even though the scale of the area was very large.

The fireplace was one of the first things we selected. Then we brought some texture to the wall by installing raw blackened steel plates and created the necessary depth for the Fire Ribbon vent Free 4ft installation. Since the wall was so long we created boxes on each side to mimic the Spark box, giving the illusion that it was longer.

The fireplace ended not only becoming the focal point of the whole living area but the dining room and kitchen areas too.

Contemporary Residence
Atlanta, Georgia
Architect: Edward J. Alshut, AIA
Designer: Shawn C. Alshut, ASID, RA
Photographer: Brian Gassel

Refined materials and minimalist detailing transformed the existing space to reflect the client’s contemporary style. In the main living area the two-story space was dramatized by a 20 foot tall paneled wall, shop painted in white piano finished lacquer. At the feature walls base, a band of antique bronze colored metal frames a 6’ Spark Direct Vent Fire Ribbon, providing the physical comfort of heat and the visual animation/ focus to the social entertaining area. An additional horizontal band of honed white marble was cantilevered over the ebony stained oak flooring. A continuous LED light strip was added below the floating marble band to highlight the depth of the wall. This architectural composition successfully dramatizes the scale of the space and is enlivened by the elegant Spark Fire.

Hamburg Cove
Lyme, Connecticut
Architect: Christopher Arelt
Designer: Christopher Arelt
Photographer: Michael Elsden

This modern pool house and infinity edge pool share sunset views across the waters of a beautiful cove in southeastern Connecticut. The pool house avoids conventional construction methods and materials and instead uses architectural concrete, steel, and glass as the finishes. The indoor fireplace is situated in a cast-in-place concrete wall created using veneer plywood forms. The hearth was precast and lifted into place. Outside, the Linear Burner System is positioned right at the edge of the terrace, as a similar treatment to the infinity edge pool. The linear fires link to the brilliant reds and oranges of the sunsets that grace this special property throughout the year.

Credit River Residence
Savage, MN
Architect: Peterssen Keller Architects
Designer: Betsy Vohs
Photographer: Jessica Stoe

We choose Spark Fires for the project because the fireplace was the icon of the space. The house is very open and modern. Each space is interconnected to the next. The Spark Fire anchors the main floor and draws your eye through the open stair to the fire and then out to the views of the Minnesota River Valley. The Fire Ribbon captures your attention and creates a cozy living room for this family to gather to connect after busy days. The long clean lines of the fire were pivotal in connecting the living space to the atrium. The hearth is cantilevered out from the fireplace and floats past the firebox that makes gathering next to the fire even more compelling.

Private Residence
Greater Boston Area
Architect: Adolfo Perez Architect
Designer: Adolfo Perez
Photographer: John Horner Photography

Two Spark’s Linear Burner Systems used in the project, a private residence in the greater Boston area. Different materials in each fireplace give each room its own unique character. In the Living Room, the idea was to have a focal point that drew your attention, so back lit, onyx panels were used to highlight that end of the room. In the Dining Room the fireplace would only be in use when eating so it required a different emphasis. Here, the fireplace was raised to above table height so it was clearly visible to all sitting at the dining room table, even across the 15\’ long table.
