COVER Property: Glass House

IMG_9966Poised in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, Glass House is an ultramodern architectural marvel signifying innovative developments in the area.

Resting on top of this stunning building sits the mysterious Glass House, a trilevel, Grand Aurora Award winning penthouse that raves with decorative and immaculate finishings. High volume ceilings with full length windows provide sweeping views of the bay while onyx marble flooring and glass walls offers a cool, contemporary flair. The interior design is independently ravishing—handsome wall textures flawlessly combined with an accentuating smoked mirror wet bar and blackened steel accents; this masterpiece is warmed with white marble, leather walls and bursts of fire in color not to be outdone by the sunset in full gaze from the rooftop terrace.

“The inspiration for Glass House came from a collection of my favorite pieces,” says internationally famed interior designer Rob Bowen, Rob Bowen Design Group, and co-owner with Smith and Associates President and CEO, Bob Glaser. “From the thought provoking mosaic art walls brought to life by fifth generation Italian artisans to the more subtle room that’s clad in crocodile leather, Glass House truly blends rhythm, light, space and texture.”



Glass House’s state-of-the-art Creston technology system allows the homeowner onsite and remote access to lighting, climate, sound and shades—an outstanding convenience—while top of the line Subzero, Wolf and Miele appliances are lucid yet stately and seamlessly enhance the kitchen’s impressive presentation. This space was designed for its entertainment value. Mystic chandeliers, swank, tactile and romantic surfaces complete the composition of Glass House making it almost mythical. Just ask the ever present admirers often seen staring up at the masterpiece.

With more than a million dollars in cutting edge renovation, Glass House is positioned as a conversation piece for the tasteful buyer. It’s grand, it’s bold, it’s now. Glass House represents the burgeoning evolution of the Tampa/St. Pete area as a competitive, cosmopolitan metropolis.
