Glass Blocks - How could I devise to use glass blocks for patio pavers to essentially create a skylight for a window well?
Which would be strong enough support to be walked upon, tables chairs or any other regular patio things.
(Such as those frequently seen in citys in Europe where the windowwell is on the public footpath or sidewalk.

Cool job - like the structural glass block paver skylight! There are specifically designed glass block paver systems (some are made with an aluminum system and others glass block pavers are installed in a concrete system - I'll include a link below with more information for you:

For the glass paver skylight there are aluminum and concrete framed systems to make these systems work. Some systems are watertight and others are water resistant. Here is a link to learn more -

It is always hard to tell from photos because of lighting and the varibles on our screen output. But as cherry ages, it tends to get these undertones. :)

Good if it does get darker, it's what makes it so chic!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This indoor bridge is illuminated by a glass-block skylight that follows the exterior walls. With indoor bridges, it is often the case that what lies at the end is of some importance, such as the master bedroom, so the special journey is appropriate. A bathroom at the end of this hallway, for example, wouldn't make much sense.
Lisa Frederick added this to Great Material: Glass Block Grows Up
A glass-block skylight provides more visual interest than a plain sheet of glass would.
John Hill added this to Bridging the Distance Indoors
This bridge sits below a long skylight that brings light to the path and the larger space. The glass block helps make the bridge and the movement across the space special.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Grown-Up Mobiles Show Sophisticated Style
Long hallways and open airways under tall ceilings can be tough to decorate. A simple and colorful mobile could provide just the right delicate and colorful touch to the space.
