Can this shower set up work?

Here's a brainstorm from my designer for my super challenging Manhattan bathroom: Anchor a metal post into ceiling and shower rim. Right of post a glass entry door opens outward. Left of post is a window access door that swings inward 180 for full window access.

Sounded like a great idea until it became obvious this was all custom and she didn't know if it would actually function well. What are your thoughts?

Note challenges - see in pic below - 1.) Need solid wall at entry for vertical grab bar 2.) Window is half in and half out of the shower and needs to be fully accessed for cleaning and repair 3.) Window extends all the way up to ceiling height so no ability to mount anything to wall above window 4.) Not allowed to change fixture locations.
