Wow Of The Week
Villa Unika in Estoril, Portugal
The battle to conserve the planet’s resources may be global, but it will be won on a small scale, in our homes. The real estate sector is recognising its influence in offering people the choice to live in greener homes. Real estate developers like SOLYD based in Portugal are driving investment towards projects like Villa Unika, a high-end apartment complex of 15 elegant residences, where from conception to finish the emphasis has been on luxury living with a green heart.
Villa Unika has been created using sustainable materials and is designed to minimize carbon emissions throughout its life cycle. That means minimizing the use of energy, water and polluting materials in its construction, as well as offering residents the opportunity to access green energy and use fewer resources as they enjoy living there.
And what a lifestyle Villa Unika offers! There are spectacular views over Cascais Bay from the generous terraces and balconies, while private gardens offer serene escapes and secluded relaxation. There’s even an infinity pool facing the sea in the central garden, and an exclusive spa with a sauna, Turkish bath, indoor pool and a fully equipped gym. No wonder SOLYD’s managing partner Tiago Belo has made this award-winning project his WOW of the Week…
