    A sublime celebration of history and Flemish culture, August is a modern-day sanctuary set within a former Augustinian monastery in the heart of Antwerp. These five heritage-listed structures—reshaped under the guidance of legendary Belgian architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen—have been designed and fashioned as a social hub for the city. Indeed, locals stepping behind the three walled-in gardens that shelter the hotel discover a welcoming place to have a coffee, a drink, or a meeting, while guests lose themselves in those quiet gardens and an indulgent intimate spa. The hotel’s restaurant concept—a modern brasserie that considers its location and history—has been developed by chef Nick Bril who heads The Jane, a two-Michelin star eatery nearby. At August, the past becomes a prologue with a nuns’ former private chapel serving as the main lounge and bar area, with a beautiful Adolf Loos-like light feature by Flos, and customized furniture done in collaboration with Molteni&Co. Here, beautiful, huge taupe and gray-beige sofas combine with club-like dark black and brown leather sofas to create a sophisticated world of repose. A spa, complete with an outdoor swimming pond and a guests’ library, rounds out the stunning picture.

    Rooms & Suites

    The 16-square-meter Intimate room has a queen bed, while the others have a king bed, and all with views of the garden, courtyard, and/or city. Due to the structure of the original buildings, no two rooms are alike. The Authentic and Signature rooms feature high ceilings and an abundance of light. The 35-square-meter Experience Plus, the 40-square-meter Atelier, and the 42-square-meter Suite all have bathtubs, while the latter also has a sofa bed.

    MADE BY ORIGINALS

    Mouche Van Hool

    Mouche Van Hool is fast becoming a name to reckon with in game-changing hospitality in her hometown of Antwerp. The former public relations and advertising professional first created waves with Hotel Julien, two repurposed 16th-century townhouses in central Antwerp. Her second hotel, August—a former Augustinian monastery—showcases another side of the city, one that has captured her heart: “Antwerp is quite a dense city, and the new ‘Green Quarter’ real estate development is so close to the city center and yet so remarkably peaceful, with so much open space. It simultaneously represents the changing face of Antwerp and its history, while affording one room to breathe.”
