I really enjoyed working on this design for you. I wish I would have had the opportunity to draw more for your review but I am a working professional and a grad student, therefore time is limited. The design I am presenting shows the existing fireplace wall resurfaced. The lower portion is black granite applied directly to the existing brink and the upper portion is cabinetry and flush panel. I am proposing to adjust the hearth to add to the drama of the space while providing a base for the audio visual cabinetry. The base is to be clad in large sheets of limestone to contrast with the black granite above. The mantel is a steel angle, painted black and cantilevers to add contrast to the mass of the fireplace and cabinetry. My research showed that the ideal position for a 55” to be slightly above eye level when seated. The ideal viewing distance from the television is +/- 10 feet. I sincerely hope a design is submitted that meets your needs. If you have any questions in regards to my submission, I can be contacted by email at [email="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/email].
