Most ide írhatnék egy home made, kamu Coelho idézetet, de inkább csak örülök, hogy van pár ember, akik miatt még a hátfájásom is elmúlik, pikk-pakk :)
Rebirth of Coffee New York – Hotel Boscolo Budapest
The eclectic building of the Boscolo Budapest was constructed between 1892 and 1894 by the architects Alajos Hauszmann, Flòris Korb and Kàlmàn Giergl, for the Hungarian offices of the New York Life Insurance Company, by transposing the old styles of Greek, Latin, Renaissance and Baroque together in prodigiously-creative Art Nouveau.
During the two world wars, the building underwent a period of decadence. In the middle of 19th century, it opened its doors to guests once more, with not too much echoe. History of the legendary New York Coffee once-upon-a time located in the building is well.known, and we wrote serveral blogs about its tales. Here we intend to show the result of a careful and amazing contemporary restoration work carried out by the architects Maurizio Papiri, Adam D. Tihany, Massimo Iosa Ghini and Simone Micheli. Works lasted 5 years between 2001 and 2006 in collaboration with Italy’s National Center for the Restoration and Reconstruction of Monuments.
The poetic, high artistic architecture calls back the times, when the historic New York Café, opened in 1894 by the Hungarian coffee baron Sandor Steuer still worked, and is a place to meet the artistic and cultural life of the city of Budapest again.
