Three possible designs for a fireplace are drawn here. The architect has noted that it is important to have surface pattern on the fireplace to conceal casting irregularities. Below in pencil, he has made light sketches of some other possible designs. The designs include one with panelling, another with the Greek key pattern and a third more complex geometric pattern.
