Heusch Architects, with offices in Los Angeles, Paris, and Buenos Aires, led the initial renovation on Algodon Mansion, prior to its grand opening in 2009. Gerhard Heusch, Principal of Heusch’s Architects, commented, “I got involved in 2005 when Scott Mathis asked me to take a look at this crumbling beauty in Recoleta. The building was almost destroyed inside, but the harmonious and elegant proportions of the spaces and the Belle Époque details were still there, as well as the beautiful facade, although they needed a lot of care and reconstruction. It was a labor of love to restore it and transform this stunning building, first built in 1912, into a luxurious mansion functioning as a hotel. Scott Mathis’s vision was to convey to our guests a stay in an Argentinian Belle Époque mansion-prestigious and elegant but not pretentious.”

Scott Mathis, CEO and Founder of Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc., stated, “We are doubling down on our real estate assets and opportunities in Argentina with significant investments in Algodon Mansion and beyond. These key upgrades are expected to significantly enhance the real estate value of Algodon Mansion within Gaucho Holdings’ portfolio. The planned renovations are in line with our strategy to invest in high-potential real estate assets, especially considering Argentina’s current business-friendly policies under the Milei administration. We believe the time is ideal to buy Argentina real estate assets, and these renovations reflect our commitment to enhancing the value and appeal of our properties in this promising market.”
