One more photo from our time in Asheville…this is not how I would have handled the need for additional airflow at this church entrance.

🙁

    OMG, Low bid strikes again

    Agreed, it’s a shame to cut up such beautiful doors. Plus, probably a security risk; someone could take those out and crawl in.
    At least the louvers are placed symmetrically about the center door.

    That’s hard to look at.

    At least it is symmetrical!

    Lori, Is that a photoshop to make everyone crazy. I guess praying is more important than beauty but whomever did this COBB job is not going to Eden.

    Wholly crap, doorman!

    This makes the special place in my heart for architects ache. Looks like possibly some ductwork connecting to them. Even if these doors were removed from service on the side or rear elevations, so much more to make this work could and should have been done.

    About the only thing good I can observe is that they are symetrical.

    …Asheville is for louvers

    The only operable door seems to be the center door. The two side doors appear to be dead bolted. Question is – why are the louvers so large and heavy looking – and why anodized black? They also appear to be blanked off. Somebody obviously thought this was worth while – YIKES !! I would like to see what is going on the interior side of the doors. Any panic devices?

    This looks like Central UMC. At some point in the last year and a half the doors were replaced.
