Architect Visit: Remodelista Architect/Designer Fireplace Roundup

December 18, 2011

Frank Lloyd Wright believed that the hearth was the center of a home and often anchored the living spaces of his houses with monumentally scaled fireplaces. In this roundup, we visit a collection of fireplaces from the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory, which illustrate this simple but important point. To see more fireplaces, visit the Fireplaces Gallery in the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory.
