For those with a passion for history, and an eye for design, the St. Gregory Hotel in Washington D.C seamlessly combines the two. Sitting in a lively cultural scene in Dupont circle, the hotel is within easy access to the city’s most iconic neighborhoods. You’ll find some of D.C’s finest art, best shopping, and dining choices all at your fingertips. And as for the design, the recently remodeled lobby will have you so cozy, you may never want to venture up to your room.


This new design is a tasteful mixture of heritage and modern design elements. The designers at Billy Rooney Studios and Boxwood Architects worked together to create this space, selecting each detail with great consideration. In a room filled with modern, elegant design pieces, they knew that a dramatic focal point was necessary. Since heritage design was in the architectural DNA of the area, they wanted to create a modern take on the colonial aesthetic, including a history of big iron fireplaces. They envisioned a contemporary fire element, with a bronze hood so dark and tall that could be seen from 360 degrees. However, if they were to put the fireplace in their ideal location, there would be no way to vent it properly.


For commercial projects, choosing a fireplace that not only compliments the design style but also meets the logistics of the space can be a challenge. Finding means to vent the fireplace, get power to it, and meet safety standards can be a potential roadblock for design teams who have limited experience working with gas fireplaces. Having a local hearth expert to guide you through and help solve these problems becomes essential. Luckily, Pam Fleming of Day or Night Home & Hearth had just the solution for them: the ventless H Series fireplace.
