Strong and solid – you could be forgiven for thinking fireplaces are only available exactly as displayed in the showroom. However, everything from the flue to the firebox to the finish can be customised, turning a standard fire into a showpiece.

As one of Auckland's leading fireplace professionals, Fires by Design creates one-off domestic fires for many clients, says marketing co-ordinator Deborah Grey.

"We employ architectural graduates and offer a full personal design service as well as an array of off-the-shelf options.

"Fires by Design works closely with architects looking for a design team with the skill set and experience to oversee the manufacture of these specialist features.

"We often complement a relationship between other parties – usually the owner and architect. The end result is a one-off feature with a dramatic ‘wow' factor that still retains all the essential practical and safety aspects of a fireplace."


Individual fireplaces created by Fires by Design can be found in luxury lodges, bars and restaurants around the country.

The company displays gas, wood and outdoor fires at its East Tamaki showroom.
