Discover the interior of the historic Esplendor Savoy Rosario
Its architecture is part of the heritage of the city to preserve the image urban. The spirit of its founding remains intact and in fact, the Esplendor Savoy Rosario is a work of art in itself. It breathes art and fashion.
The most interesting challenge was to restore and recover the original elements and the different areas. The PLAN Arquitectura Study did not want to bring into the building any aesthetically new materials, so they reused most of the floorings that were originally in the restrooms area, like the beveled ivory-colored majolica, which can now be seen at the public restrooms areas and on the basement walls.
Inside the Esplendor Savoy Rosario there are elements that are also part of this List and that had to be protected, and even recovered, like the main staircase (done in Carrara marble and stuccoed in such a way that it mimics a marble frieze which covered the whole staircase) and the service circulation core, with antique ironwork in its elevator, also part of the Cultural Heritage List.
In its rooms slept important celebrities as Freddie Mercury, Federico Garcia Lorca, Carlos Gardel, or more closely in time Fito Paez and Lionel Messi.
In the interior of the Savoy Rosario it has an art collection of the “Mondongo” a group of artists integrated initially by Agustina Picasso, Juliana Laffitte and Manuel Mendanha. Working together since 1999 they make pictures whose seal distinctive is the material. The Esplendor Hotel Buenos Aires, located in the Centre of Buenos Aires, also has hanging spectacular works of the artistic group “Mondongo”.
