Covered Seating Area at the University of Reading in Reading
Posted on 26/09/2019
The University of Reading wanted to create a shaded area for their students to socialise, study and relax in. A&S Landscape designed a set of shade sails which were a stylish solution for the campus.
Project – The University of Reading add shade sails in Reading
Product – Maxima Sail
Requirement – The University of Reading was converting an area of their campus and decided to create an area for their students. The staff wanted the area to be used throughout the year and so they turned to A&S Landscape for help.
Solution – Three Maxima Sail structures were installed at the university campus, creating a bold statement in the once disused area. The university chose two Lava Red sails to contrast against one Charcoal Grey sail. Each shade sail measures 4000mm X 4000mm, so plenty of shaded space has been created. The Slate Grey steelwork also works perfectly with the coloured fabric and surrounding buildings.
Result – The University of Reading has created a fantastic sheltered area which is now very popular with the students. Benches have been added underneath the shade sails, so students can easily eat their lunch, study for a lecture or just relax with friends. The inside dining areas are now less crowded too, as students have more options of where to sit even in poor weather.
