Two Foot Ten Foot (yes, that’s the company name) was brought on this project by Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects (yes, that’s the company name) to help design and fabricate two custom fireplaces with large, organically-shaped chimneys and custom gas-log sets.

The fireplaces serve as the centerpiece of a community center lodge at the epicenter of an amazing new park on the banks of the Arkansas River close to downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The modern lodge design culminates at the custom gas-log set with 360 degree views in a public space. An identical gas-log set sits one floor below, and outside under a roof to provide patrons with a warm place to sit on cold days. Free-flowing stone chimneys reach to the sky to exhaust both fires up and out of the building safely.
