You want to see just about the most perfect renovation imaginable? Take a gander at this work of art.
A glorious abandoned century-old theater in Buenos Aires was renovated into a bookstore.
All the beautiful original architectural details were maintained and restored.
The mezzanine level has thousands of books, with views overlooking the entire interior.
The stage is now a café and coffee shop.
I cannot imagine a more perfect renovation (drool, wipe).
Maybe this will inspire some American entrepreneurs to follow suit.
