Venturi Window Screens

Venturi Window Screens

Fine woodworker and artist Chris Reiner rebuilt each of the 10 screens for the “venturi” windows in the upstairs hallway, tucked up under the eaves of the house. The original frames and screens were disintegrating, and airflow was becoming restricted. Chris created new redwood frames and installed copper screen salvaged from another project. The completion of this project has made a huge difference in light and airflow. Thank you Chris, for sharing your time and skills with us!

What a transformative experience to view such an innovative and functional work of art that people happened to live in!
