Door and door handle design - when there is no space to put the handle in horizontal position

An interesting door design (municipality building) where the handle part coming out of the door is to short to be put in horizontal position since there is a door window in the way. It could be simply solved with another handle, but why bother :). One must use right hand to push the handle anti-clockwise; although the left side of the door opens. If left hand is used to pull down the handle it gets in the way of the left window handle.

From the other side the handle looks normal.
