Minecraft Fireplace Design Brief
Wayne from North Balwyn came to us with a unique design brief.
He knew what he wanted but did not know how to draw it so he enlisted his 10 year old son to mock up the space and design a fireplace using the popular kids computer game Minecraft.
At the gas log fire company we love a challenge so set to work finding exactly the right fire for the space to make the Minecraft dream a reality. We used the Real Flame Hybrid 1000 gas fire with a glass back to create viewing from 3 sides.
As you can see by the below images we managed to nail the brief, Wayne’s son could not believe it and said “It is exactly what I drew in Minecraft!”
Wayne was so impressed he wrote us a 5 star Google review.
Brunswick Entertainment Feature Fireplace
Now, before you read any more, if you watch Sue’s video here, we think you’ll get the picture!
When Sue and Allan contacted us, they were after a large, high impact fireplace with a difference: they also needed it to heat the space and cupboard, as well as the wall feature that incorporated their home entertainment system.
Our team recommended the Landscape 1600 gas pebble fire and the results speak for themselves. Clean lines, great efficiency and a massive heating capacity… we knew the Landscape 1600 was the standout solution for Sue and Allan.
From here, The Gas Log Fire crew devised a plan and CAD design of the installation so that Sue and Allan could visualise their solution before any work commenced.
Now, as far as customer satisfaction goes, we’ll let Sue do the talking.
The Common Man Restaurant at South Wharf
In this instance, we were approached by Real Flame (the manufacturer) to supply and install a custom feature fireplace in a prominent Melbourne waterfront restaurant.
After consulting with the restaurant’s owners, we knew the Captiva Island three-sided fireplace would create the ideal centrepiece that would not only nail the brief, but most importantly, would see more customers heading into the restaurant.
To accommodate the restaurant’s needs, all work was done outside of standard business hours and as you can see, it adds just the right amount of ‘wow!’ factor to the room.
The Iconic O’Connell’s Gastropub in South Melbourne
It’s not everyday you’re approached to renovate one of Melbourne’s best-known hotels. The team at The Gas Log Fire Company was engaged by Leeda projects through Real Flame gas fires to install three feature fireplaces that’d create a real talking point.
The team installed two open coal burners made into traditional mantels and cast inserts. As this was being placed in the intimate dining area, it was the perfect solution because we knew it would give the room some real warmth and atmosphere. Especially in those cosy areas the restaurant is renowned for!
Additionally, we installed a real centerpiece future purevision fireplace into the main dining area. This serves to draw people into the room and has become a real focal point.
Heatseeker 1500 in Warranwood
There’s nothing like hearing this feedback from a customer:
“Thanks Andrew – your guys have done a fantastic job: it is everything I wanted and more!!”
When Veronica came to us, the team found ourselves getting to work on installing the brand new Real Flame Heatseeker 1500 open gas fire. As you can see in the before (that first image) and after shots, we really spearheaded a fantastic transformation with this one!
Real Flame Landscape 1000 with cupboards in Hastings
Who wants an old wall furnace that doesn’t actually work? Mike and Debbie certainly didn’t but they had always wanted a feature fireplace with a modern look.
The team at The Gas Log Fire Company met the duo onsite and designed a look that incorporated a Real Flame Landscape 1000. A TV above the fire was even installed while cupboards and shelving were supplied too.
That’s Amore… romance and open fire, minus the mess!
Our brief here was simple: “we want to achieve the look and ambience of an open fire, without any of the hassle or mess.”
After consulting with Richard and Vicki, our crew recommended the Real Flame Heatseeker 850 with a Chrome and Gold Deco front. We also suggested a black granite hearth, a margin set and a hand painted ‘Bouvier’ style mantel.
Stylish and classic… these are the words now being used to describe the area. Additionally, no glass or messy screens are in place to spoil the fantastic view of the fire. Not to mention, all of this was made possible with the simple flick of a switch.
Take a peek at the videos to see what Richard really thought of the result.
