Gas fire ventilation requirements for open plan house

Hi, I have a 'decorative basket' fire in my living room but currently have no externally venting airbricks. However, the house is open plan with a wide archway from the living room through to the hall and then through to the kitchen. It is also open to the stairs.

With this kind of layout would I still require an externally venting airbrick in the living room?

Have it professionally installed by a Gas Safe engineer and you can't go wrong
