Sublime Sanctum

When we heard of Vincent Van Duysen’s first-ever hotel project, and that the project was to open on the exact date of a recent business trip to the location of it, we saw it as a sign from the heavens above. August, located in a former 19th-century Augustian cloister in Antwerp, is the latest of Belgium’s must-visits. 

Die-hard Van Duysen fans won’t be disappointed with the modern-day sanctuary, located a comfortable stroll outside the city centre. Authentic materials – check. Historic references – check. A sober and muted colour scheme – check. Attention to detail, with striking lighting by Flos, glassware by Serax and original art in each room – check. Our only wish? That we would get even more Van Duysen. We simply can’t get enough.
