Casa Helsinki: A Midcentury Guesthouse in Argentina


Casa Helsinki: A Midcentury Guesthouse in Argentina

Alexa Hotz February 03, 2016

Lately we’ve noticed a new (or restored) trend toward European-style guesthouses, or rentals that fall somewhere between a rental app and boutique hotel.

Take Casa Helsinki, for example, the newly opened guesthouse in Córdoba, Argentina, with four furnished bedrooms for temporary and extended stay.  Founder Diego Sanchez created Casa Helsinki after he opened up his own home to international travelers and discovered his bent for hospitality. Here’s a look at the interiors—designed personally by Sanchez—where historic accents, midcentury design, and handmade pallet furniture all mingle.


Above: The interiors feature a mix of new and vintage pieces.


Above: Bertoia diamond chairs, a green vintage lounge chair, and a pallet wood coffee table decorate one of the guesthouse’s two living areas.


Above: Bits of artwork and low-maintenance houseplants (mother-in-law tongue and cacti) are found throughout Casa Helsinki.


Above: The building’s original tile floors carry into the second living area of the guesthouse. Handmade light fixtures hang above as a pendant and on the wall as a sconce.


Above: The simple kitchen is available for guests to use.


Above: One of four bedrooms, the Hamburg Room is $33 per night or $650 per month.


Above: The room is outfitted with palette furniture and a simple paper globe lantern.


Above: A bright red task lamp hovers above a desk for two.


Above: Built-in ply shelving where sliding doors open onto a central courtyard.


Above: Retro wire chairs and a shelf for potted plants.


Above: The large backyard is accented with string lights and outdoor furniture made entirely of pallets.
