CASA HISTORY

Former home and atelier of Brazilian artist Martha Meyer, the casa was built in the 1980's by famous ceramist Calazans, heavily influenced by a love for the Greek Mediterranean islands with their simple homes seemingly washed in constant sunshine. This bright, exceedingly welcoming home was in recent years the creative studio of Wilbert Das and his team of artisans, UXUA D.A.S. Design. In executing the 2020 renovation, Wilbert and collaborator Peter Kempkens made updates to emphasize comfort and leisure such as the stepped swimming pool with rare onyx tiles and a large, open kitchen, indoor/outdoor lounges and dining areas, and a rooftop BBQ grill. The casa was then christened Casa Luz (House of Light).

All rooms and the large covered patio face an interior courtyard filled with flowering bushes and trees, and a rooftop deck overlooks the green valley running down towards a mangrove forest and the wooden bridge entrance to Trancoso’s beaches. Casa Luz is a neighbor to UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa, separated only by the rustic Rua do Bosque, a charming, stone-paved street.

DESIGN

Cozy and uncomplicated but highly artistic, the casa offers pleasures for every moment.

Nature plays a big role in Casa Luz's charm with a flowering garden in the central courtyard where tropical birds love to nest, making colorful entrances and exits all day long and filling the air with song. Bedroom suites are reached by walking through this tropical garden and each is accessed directly from the courtyard, offering privacy and convenience. The house has a cheerful style celebrating Bahian creativity with four tapestries and a screen-printing from the renowned artist Kennedy Bahia, who gained fame working in the 70's and 80's. Original decor and objects from UXUA’s Artist In Casa mix with custom pieces of the UXUA D.A.S. collection as well as contributions of local Pataxó artisans and regional artists.

Casa Luz has as much social space and versatility of any casa in our collection, the wide patio facing the pool and garden making a particularly inviting spot to lounge and relax, with deep cushioned sofas and a hand-woven hammock. For those who love cooking in, the casa presents a true 'social kitchen' connecting itself seamlessly to the living room and outdoor patio spaces.
