Belas I home designed with privacy in mind by Estúdio Urbano


Surrounded by a mesmerising landscape, Belas I is a luxury family home that is located in Sintra Portugal. Designed by Estúdio Urbano a Portuguese architectural practice, the home offers total seclusion and privacy to the owners.

The luxury home is located inside the Belas Clube de Campo, an up market private condominium in Portugal.


The modernist inspired home offers high-end design features, clean lines and landscaped gardens.


The contemporary home has been built over three floors; the first floor includes a garage, maid room, laundry room and technical area; the second floor boasts the office, living room, kitchen and bedrooms and the third floor is dedicated to the wow factor master bedroom.


“The relationship between the house and garden is gained through the creation of ‘balconies’ that have been designed intentionally higher than needed. The same tension was created between the house and the sky through the use of thick solar shades. Autochthonous vegetation occupies the extensive gardened areas,” say the architects.
