A landmark Gold Coast row house, slim and short on sun, gained an expansive, bright feeling in the course of a renovation. Glass and openness characterize this project. A glass floor in part of the living room connects it visually to the kitchen below and lets natural light reach that interior room. Elsewhere in the living room, a window 20 feet high is divided into panes of assorted finishes and framed in black metal, becoming as much a sculptural work as an oversized window.
