Jeddah - HIM2

Old building in Jeddah with "mashrabiyyas" .... the mashrabiyya is the intricate wooden lattice screens traditionally serving a dual function; breaking the harsh sun rays and also providing inabitants privacy in this conservative culture.

The mashrabiyya here, as on many houses in this district, has been adapted to accommodate ACs!
