The stacked stone fireplace pictures featured here showcase the extraordinary work of Locati Architects. Based in Bozeman, Montana, the firm's fireplace creations are -- in a word -- STUPENDOUS!
Monumental hearth above at Moonlight Lodge, Big Sky, Montana
As majestic as the Big Sky country
in which they are located, the mon-
umental designs include some of the
most spectacular stacked stone ma-
sonry fireplaces we have ever seen!
The soaring multi-story extravaganzas that follow are ideal for the vast open interior spaces they anchor. Note how the randomly placed forward-jutting stones in the fireplace surround pictured below, left, lend visual and architectural interest to the overall design.
Similarly -- albeit to a lesser extent -- the rustic stone surround pictured below, left, utilizes a handful of forward-protruding stones for added interest. For additional contrast, a rustic wood mantel shelf made from salvaged timber has been incorporated in each of the two designs that follow . . . . .
. . . while the design pictured below sports a finely finished "furniture style" wood mantel shelf.
As with the designs in the stacked stone fireplace pictures above, the natural stone fireplace surrounds that follow utilize cut stones in roughly square and roughly rectangular shapes. A sampling of Locati Architects' emphasis on unique, high quality detailing is shown in these two designs.
For example, the unique mantel shelf below, left, is beautifully crafted from a combination of wood and hand-forged metal. The elongated corbels, or brackets, that support the rustic timber mantel shelf on the fireplace at right are also highly unusual.
Pictured below are stone masonry fireplace designs with arched firebox openings. Once again, the mantel shelf pictured below, left, is finely crafted from wood and hand-forged metal.
The massive corner hearth design that follows ties in beautifully with the natural stone cladding on the opposite wall.
As the stacked stone fireplace pic-
tures at right and below clearly
show, Locati Architects' creativity
and skill extend to the out-of-
doors, as well. The majestic moun-
tains provide a stunning backdrop
for these equally majestic outdoor
stone fireplace designs!
