Casa de Agosto -

still time in its natural habitat

There’s only one tiny stroke between your feet touching the limestone patio in Casa de Agosto and feeling the rippling presence of what August embodies – still time in its natural habitat.

August is the king of calendars, it's an in-between time, an entire month for being present in your day-to-day. It's been there forever – somewhat a cheat, the hidden reserves, the hidden ice cream of the year.

A month for being in the now, doing whatever it is that signifies summer to you, and devouring the stillness of each moment.

 

In August, only one thing is extra important – being easy on ourselves.

Modern design meets the Spanish cortijo 

 

Traditional Spanish cortijo villa was remastered by THESET design team.

Now Casa de Agosto is a modernist’s dream in a historical facade. Modern interior design choices complement and highlight the traditional Spanish architecture. Shadows and light blend with angles and arcs – details in the surrounding space that flow nowhere and create a world for you right there. Where even less is more is on vacation. 

The villa’s art does not trap your attention – it’s sophisticated, knows to wait, yet at the same time it’s unique enough to stay on your mind as an inherent part of the Casa. The metal sculptures with light installation were created exclusively for Casa de Agosto. The sculptor gathered his inspirations from Joan Miró works and the Japanese architecture.

The contemporary soul of the villa was nurtured to come together seamlessly with its very contemporary new owners.

The entire Casa has a Smart Home system to add the ultimate comfort – and a touch of technology which plays nicely with a modern home. Being in Casa de Agosto gives you balance as a present. Slowly streaming, no extremes – the perfect temperature, the intermission mode. 

Outdoor scenarios

 

As you take the steps, the olive grove and garden slowly come into sight.

These olive trees have counted a few hundreds of Augusts by now, and you can sense that maturity in the atmosphere – being around them feels calm and full against your will. 

 

You find yourself embraced by the cascading travertine steps and terraces, joining the landscape and stretching far beyond to nothingness. Swimming twenty five meters toward the horizon might give you a nice combo of senses – floating on water and infinity both sound like they certainly belong to August.

THESET created several functional zones inbuilt in Casa de Agosto surroundings with a purpose of creating just the right space for people with different leisure interests.

There’s a perfect spot for wine tasting and there’s an outdoor kitchen for cuisine pirouettes, to name a couple.  Big families, nuclear families, people, friends, thinkers and players – everyone was considered when creating the details and spaces in Casa de Agosto.

This is not a pretentious place, but things are different in this cortijo, true: seeing becomes sight here, and other verbs slow down as well.
