Buenos Aires – Argentina has a new cultural centre in Casa Cavia, a beautifully renovated Alejandro Christophersen design, promoting the best in architecture, gastronomy, design, literature and art.
The interior, reviving the understated glamour of 1930s café culture, houses a multidisciplinary experience, merging the sensory worlds of olfaction, fine cuisine and literature.
Founder and creative director Guadalupe Garcia Mosqueda sought out the finest Argentine talent to welcome guests when doors to the KallosTurin-designed space open in March 2015.
Within its stonewashed white walls, guests will find La Cocina, a restaurant serving dishes inspired by Argentina’s multicultural roots, a fragrance laboratory from Julian Bedel’s Fueguia 1833, a flower shop, publisher and bookstore.
A lushly planted central courtyard complete with reflecting pool lends a space for contemplation and guests will be encouraged to while away the hours in the afternoon sun before exploring the sensual feast within.
