Aluminum Air-con Compressor Screens

The idea of putting screens in front of an outdoor air-con compressor unit is a common practice for apartment design that tells people: You are not seeing an air-con compressor behind the screen but a screen (usually in vertical or horizontal aluminum screen). 

As ironic as it may sound, this work like an afterthought that tries to manipulate the visual appearance of an apartment which is in actual fact, a wasteful expenditure. 

At worst, some apartment with a limited budget on the aluminum screen would space the members of the aluminum screen further apart. 

You can clearly see the air-con compressor behind the widely gapped aluminum screen and hence, its objective fails and it is at the same time a wasteful expenditure. 

The same thing happened to the multi-story car parking podium.
