CASA HISTORY

Located between Casa Wilbert, the personal residence of UXUA's founder, and two native-owned fisherman casas, this remains still today one of the most authentic and vibrant spots on the Historic Quadrado.

Casinha is an old casa with love in its history. For as long as anyone can remember it was nothing more than a simple shack, but it was eventually bought by Brazilian filmmaker Augusto Sevá, one of Trancoso's first biribandos which is an affectionate title natives gave hippies and travelers relocating here in the 1970s. Augusto and his partner Isa went on to became the proud parents of the first non-native children born in the area. When he first bought this utopian garden full of natural sunlight, Augusto was inspired by a simple dream; create a family and live together in a "garden with a house" as opposed to a "house with a garden". So when renovation of the property began. Augusto maintained the old structure in its original form, adding an open veranda with a few covered areas where the lush surrounding greenery could be appreciated in any weather.

DESIGN

We love this house. It's a pure expression of Trancoso’s eccentric history and essence of simplicity, its warm embrace of nature and family.

As the newest addition to the ALMA collection, the recent renovation added a second bedroom, bathroom with bathtub and brought imaginative, one-of-a-kind furnishing and abundant dashes of new textures and colors, with artwork and décor from the exclusive UXUA D.A.S. collection created just steps away at an atelier within UXUA's gardens. Contributions feature works by UXUA Artist in Casa residents such as UK fashion illustrator Joey Yu, as well as works of xilogravura (woodcut printing) by J. Borges. In 2022 the pool, outdoor shower and lounge were executed by designer Wilbert Das as the final touches of comfort to complete a perfect little Quadrado getaway.
