SkyWatch: Green Rawasheen

The wooden lattice window coverings called rawasheen are a unique feature of Jeddah's architecture. The rawasheen allows for privacy and air flow.  They are painted a variety of colors, mostly in blues and greens.

I imagine the shade it provides helps tremendously in an apartment as well.

Most buildings have AC units all over the place. I keep ours on here year-round. Can't take the heat any more. Woe is me!

Yes, William - the buildings were built tall and close together to create more airflow as well as to provide shade too, just like the rawasheen window coverings.
