A 100-year-old theatre is turned into the most spectacular bookstore

bookstore

(From Lost at e Minor) In Buenos Aires, you can find heaven for bookworms: a 100-year-old theatre renovated into a glorious bookstore.

The El Ateneo Grand Splendid used to be called the Grand Splendid Theater. It was built in 1919 and was turned into a cinema some years later. In 2000, it underwent a stunning transformation as it became a bookshop.

Fernando Manzone, the architect behind the renovation, kept the original architectural details by Torres Armengol and Pero. These include the balconies, the ornate trimmings lining the handrails and walls, and the beautiful frescoed ceiling. The stage, meanwhile, was designed to house a small café.

The 21,000-square-foot bookstore’s beauty draws in over a million visitors each year, with over 700K books sold annually too.
