Operable Glass Block French Doors

Submitted by: B-green Homes

Designer's Description: 

I am a green homebuilder and want to share with Dwell readers a unique, operable glass-block exterior door that I built and installed in the shower area of my "Boomerang" house in the mountains of Costa Rica. Based on a very robust 180-year-old French door mechanism,  my version combines sturdy technology with modern glass-block, making what I believe to be the world's only operable glass block double-door.
