Millennium Tower is, on its surface, a 684 foot residential skyscraper containing 442 units. We could write for days about the architecture of this glass-clad skyscraper, the private dinners prepared by James Beard Award winning chefs or the Olympic-class fitness center. However, at the end of the day, where is the home always made? In between a handful of exterior walls, or in this case 10’ floor to ceiling windows 59 stories above Hawley Street.
Modern Linear Fireplace:
The penthouses feature H Series Millennium gas fireplaces by European Home. This modern gas fireplace was engineered specifically for the style and comfort of Millennium Tower residents and the architecture of the building. How do you pull off a linear fireplace at 600 feet you ask? Simple, engineer a fireplace that burns so cleanly you remove the need for venting.
Holly Markham, founder of European Home, worked with Halle Auerbach and MP Boston to develop the perfect linear gas fireplace for these luxury living spaces. We asked Halle about the collaboration and this is what she had to say:
“…The vent free fireplace became a key component to our customization package and success in selling out the units. A fireplace can complete a home but due to the nature of a high rise residential tower and the size of the units, a typical ventless fireplace would produce way too much heat and not provide optimal comfort we needed for our luxury experience.
We had multiple design meetings with Holly and her to team to get the look we wanted and develop a custom burner that fit our needs – great flame but did not get too hot for our condominiums. We were able to swap the burner into different sized boxes to continue to develop a customized look for different unit owners. The flexibility and willingness to work with us is why we would recommend this group and look forward to future projects. We have been very happy with the success of the project and fireplaces.”
What’s amazing about Millennium Tower Boston is each interior is specially customized for its owner. From the flooring to the fireplace surround these rooms tell a unique story about their inhabitants lives, written down in the universal language of design.
It has been said that no work of art could ever compare to a great city. Just imagine throwing open the balcony doors and greeting this view every morning. The whole city is laid out in front of you: the Boston Common, the Charles River and America’s history written in cobblestone and urban bustle playing out, each and every day.
