What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Great Material: Glass Block Grows Up
Strategic illumination makes these recycled-glass-block walls sparkle. They also help to preserve privacy without sacrificing sunlight.
Josh McCullar | SMBW added this to Great Compositions: Heavy and Light
Ever since Pierre Chareau built the Maison de Verre in Paris in 1928, architects have been smitten with the use of glass block as a monolithic expression. This home in Austin, Texas uses glass block along a wall facing a hillside for faceted texture, light, solidity and translucency. Just the right amount of wood and nature complement the palette, and the effect is beautiful. I'm imagining the darkness of night with a thousand candles lit on the hill.
Dorman Architects added this to See Light Play in 14 Homes From Paris to Texas
2. Beverly Skyline, Austin, Texas, Bercy Chen StudioThis is a more modern take on Maison de Verre, using recycled glass blocks as insulating infill panels between the steel structure. The positioning of the light sources inside and the varying qualities of the glass blocks add to the ethereal glow.

More from the light play article. I like the glass bricks, but am thinking more or them as a possible separation for the shower in the master bedroom. Can't see using them on the exterior of this house
