Project Name: Cave Black Limestone Fireplace
Residential Project: Modern Gas Fireplace Meets Ancient Stone
Cave Black Limestone Fireplace
In this luxury residence, the modern gas fireplace meets face-to-face with ancient black limestone. The articulated limestone face adds dramatic impact to this fireplace design. Custom-designed linear pieces of stone in three thicknesses were used. Each of the 3/8″, 5/8″, and 1″ stone pieces were mesh-mounted on 21 5/8″ x 6″ panels. This design approach facilitated a quick, easy, and uniform installation.
Limestone Finishes Used in this Design
- Fireplace surround is polished finish
- Main cladding is sand-blasted
HDG Cave Black Limestone
Limestone is a sedimentary stone formed from organic elements including water, plants, and animals. This project features a fireplace surround made of black limestone rich with visible fossils and tiny calcite veins. The polished and sand-blasted finishes used on the articulated face and the surround provide good contrast and visual interest, making them ideal for a modern fireplace design.
