KE Structures completes Caribbean Sea project
KE structures were chosen by Arch. Perna and Arch. Tulumello for a prestigious private villa placed next to Antigua’s marina; Antigua is one of the isles in the Lesser Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea, renowned for its white sand and turquoise sea beaches. KE Structures is a major player in the awnings and pergolas market, with several branches, along with the headquarters located in Noventa di Piave (Venice), Italy.
The project comes from the customer’s need of covering four different areas of the residential complex: the entrance, the area standing next to the living room, the terrace of the sleeping area and the mooring. With regard to the living room and sleeping area, five placed-against Gennius Isola 2 were installed, three on the ground floor on the exit of the living area and two on the first floor, next to the sleeping area.
Isola 2 was chosen in order to meet the need for a structure in line with the architectural look of the residential complex, which is characterised by a neat and linear style and by soft colours. This is why both the structure and the covering cloth are white. Isola 2 is an aluminium awning structure with retractable packaging, made up of a cloth fixed to a system with crossbar profiles, trolleys and guides; the system allows a horizontal sliding.
In the area next to the entrance a Kedry Plus bioclimatic pergola with roof blades was installed, being it lighter and more essential in its design, once again in line with the villa’s style and soft colours. Kedry Plus is an aluminium awning structure with an adjustable-blades roof, made up of a perimetral gutter profile that allows blades rotation and water drainage.
Finally, a Gennius Roomy special structure was chosen for protecting the mooring. Gennius Roomy is actually one of the products with the highest performances concerning wind and water resistance available in the market.
