E3 Property celebrate success as they are shortlisted in The ID&A £2.5-£5 Million (Property Value) Award with their development The Keys in Quinta Do Lago.
A unique development of 48 spacious new state-of-the-art golf-front villas and 24 lakefront apartments designed in architectural styles inspired by Miami’s Art Deco oceanfront mansions, the Mid-Century Modern residences of Palm Springs and the high ceilinged Hollywood Regency neo-classical homes found on the West Coast.
Mid-century American vernacular has been used, specifically those of Hollywood, Palm Springs and Miami. Each residence has been created to be durable, functional and above all beautiful in form. Architectural trends often found in contemporary architecture are replaced by classical features like cornicing, courtyards and breezeways linking living pavilions to extended areas which seamlessly bring the outdoors in.
Every villa has two pools: one in the garden for the family and a grown-up, full-size infinity pool in the Sky Garden under the stars. This tropical playground also features a hot spa, a Sky Kitchen and private areas for entertaining and sun bathing.
The design concept is in sharp contrast with the traditional architecture of the Algarve. At The Keys, in keeping with modern lifestyles, natural light through big windows and state- of-the art natural air-flow cooling combines with the use of engineering structures so that buildings can be open-sided, permitting indoor-outdoor living whereby the dividing line between interior and exterior dissolves.
Materials have been sourced from around the world to deliver unique finishes and features. These have been chosen for quality as much as for texture, beauty, rarity and sustainability. The homes have a timeless quality to them, as classical elements have been introduced into the design.
