The A|S Interior
The perfect synthesis of historical authenticity and contemporaneity is achieved by the elegant European interior design signature of this majestic residence.
The interior design as well as the architectural renovation is the work of the creative duo and owners of the residence, Andre and Sandy.
‘… We have started a conversation between the unique environment, the rich history, the overwhelming architecture and our European design philosophy to create a perfect balance between these worlds…’
With their aesthetic sense and design talent, they find expression in all aspects of creativity. At the same time, they master the art of toning down and finding true elegance by achieving a perfect dialogue between luxury and minimalism.
… The art of chic simplicity rather than ostentatious splendor is our idea of a luxury interior…
In this architectural masterpiece, you will indulge a balanced cocktail of historical Cuban heritage and European urban design. A minimalistic bohemian style that is so precious to Havana’s European heritage and to the sensibility of a luxury boutique concept that is perfectly anchored in the 21st century.
A significant part of the interior collection has been created with local craftsmen. Materials and textures are fashioned with respect for the artistic, artisanal tradition that comes to life again through the contemporary designs and forms that withstand the tests of time.
With their preference for clean designs, austere lines and a toned down natural color palette, the result is a hybrid of calm contemporary chic and twentieth century modernism. A surprising, yet well-balanced twist to the monochromatic signature is the colorful and unique collection of iconic vintage Venetian glass objects from the sixties. An extra personal statement in each of the rooms and public spaces are the large abstract artworks, exclusively created for each room by Andre Visser.
The sleekly styled ambiance combines beautifully with the historical residency and its extraordinary Havana atmosphere that has been so carefully conserved. The overwhelming spaces that boast up to over 5 meters height, the majestic columns and arcades and the eclectic authentic details all integrate naturally with this thoughtful and minimalistic interior. Elegant luxury and modern convenience are implemented in the lofty rooms and suites, where the eclectic dynamism has been tempered with a monastic serenity. A timeless appeal of a custom-made experience.
This boutique hotel is an inspiring and outstanding addition to the busting neighborhood in which it sits, and a feat of modern room architecture and innovative interior design hidden behind an impressive colonial façade.
For those who appreciate quality, art, and a contemporary chic style in a historical setting, the A|S Boutique Residence is definitely the place to stay.
