Traditional Design with Modern Efficiency | Lopi 864CF 40K Gas Fireplace

Located in the North Eastern suburbs of Research, Melbourne, this beautiful home was designed with the inspiration of a modern farmhouse with a colonial-meets-hampton’s aesthetic. Installed into this home’s open kitchen, dining and living space is the Lopi Fireplaces 864CF 40K GS2 gas fireplace.



This design ethos is evident in the modern white walls, open floorplan and high ceilings combined with traditional wooden floors and features. The homeowners wanted to capture the traditional aesthetic of an open fire chimney while utilising the simplicity and efficiency of a gas fireplace, so what better choice than the 864CF 40K GS2 – chosen for its traditional design, thin fireplace trim and tall, captivating flames. Housed by a dry stacked stone surround and brick external feature, this install emphasises the blend between traditional design and modern technology often associated with a modern farmhouse design.

As the largest traditional unit in the High Output range of gas fireplaces  and with a heating capacity of up to 185 Sqm, the 864CF 40K GS2 is the perfect option for heating an open floorplan such as this one, thanks to the included 6-speed quiet blower system that allows control of the convection heat being output from the unit, and the ceramic glass included as standard for increased radiant heat. Given the high heat output of this unit, safety is a crucial consideration. Included in all of Lopi Gas Fireplaces is the Clear Fire Safety Screen – a mesh screen positioned 25mm from the glass to eliminate the danger of touching the hot glass without disrupting the view.

Equipped with the GreenSmart 2® (GS2) system, the 864CF 40K GS2 offers complete control over the fireplace via the included GS2 remote. This can control the flame height, 6-speed quiet fans, overhead accent lighting, Ember-Glo™ lighting or even operate on the Smart Thermostat function to automatically modulate the flame and control the room temperature.


We designed and built almost the entire living, dining and kitchen area around the Lopi Fireplace. It was going to be the major feature in the living room so it was critical to have the right fireplace. We chose the Lopi 864 for real large flame and traditional firebox design with thin surround allowing it to tie in with the feature dry stacked stone surround to give the impression of an open fireplace. The capability of the fireplace has been amazing it fills the space with its 5m cathedral ceilings with ease, especially on the cold Winter Melbourne nights. The remote controls just adds a level of sophistication by removing face mounted controls and also its ability to thermostatically control from the remote controls position in the room.

The 864CF 40K GS2 is the perfect choice for those seeking an efficient, traditional gas fireplace equipped with advanced technologies. For more information on the 864CF 40K GS2, check out Lopi.
