Project Name: Soonchunhyang University Sky Lounge

Location: Soonchunhyang University, 22, Soonchunhyang-ro, Eumnae-ri, Asan-si, Chungcheongnam-do, Republic of Korea

Dealer: Sun Solutions, Seoul

Client: Soonchunhyang University

Covered area/Measurements: 208 sq.m / Width 26 m - Height 3,6 m - Projection 7 m

Product: 2 GENNIUS A4 AS with 4 guides


The top floor covered area of Soonchunhyang University was originally designed to obtain an impressive covered space in order to host the annual meeting of the Korean Council for Presidents of Private Universities.

The solution has been identified in the installation of 2 KE Gennius A4 AS structures: a choice which combines style, functionality and quality. The installation will be permanent and will be used as a sky lounge for students.

The GENNIUS A4 AS sky lounge has been designed to meet the co-housing needs of university students, with the aim of creating an additional space to encourage interaction.

"In a social context in which housing and relationship dynamics are much more fluid than the past - says KE CEO, Simone Mazzon - KE believes it is essential to promote new outdoor lifestyles, which reflect the needs of those who live in shared areas, whether they are co-working or co-housing spaces."

A4’s essential design integrate seamlessly with the college building modern lines and the surroundings.

One of the strongest features of Gennius A4 model - and generally speaking of the entire Gennius range - is the extreme structure modularity. A4 is ideal for covering large areas and is widely customizable: the locking system for windows has been created ad hoc by a Korean company.

All Gennius pergolas reinvent the outdoor, creating additional room space, which can be multi-purpose, multi-functional and accessible at any time of the year.

The Soonchunhyang University Sky Lounge project perfectly reflects the innovative matrix that characterizes the work of KE. The company has gained the international spotlight in the outdoor industry, signing a step forward in the evolution of design for contract.
