Staircase and natural light

Cat T
last month

Our place is a Victorian terrace in inner city Sydney. The ground floor living area gets practically no natural light. The ground floor stairs are currently hidden behind a wall from the living room.
That wall also hides a lovely big window to our internal light well.

I'm thinking of changing that wall into a half wall so that I still get the dividing effect, while letting natural light from the window in.

Are half walls old fashioned? any other options?

I've attached one photo from inside the living room showing in yellow the top part of the wall I want to remove. I've attached a second photo of the light behind the wall and the window.

Thank you
