Travel Destination: Limón Apartments, Buenos Aires

Located among the baroque churches, colonial houses, art museums and old glam cafés in Buenos Aires’ San Telmo district, Lemon Apartments is the latest offering from boutique hostel brand Puerto Limón.

Interiors – by local architecture firm Grin – pay special emphasis to the property’s social spaces, in particular the bar and the lounge, which furnished with mid-century classics, is dressed in a mix of velvet and linen fabrics, rustic wood and stone paneled walls, creating a light and cosy atmosphere.

“I was inspired by this glorious and shabby barrio. As a counterpart, I wanted to create a casual, warm and elegant setting but with a homey feeling, bringing in very comfortable furniture,” explains designer Adriana Grin.

In each of the eight 36 sq m apartments – which either look out onto the swimming pool or the old-style street outside – there is a fully equipped kitchen-living room, bedroom and bathroom. Hand-woven wool rugs and pine headboards are further enhanced with Eero Saarinen tables and BKF leather chairs.
