Oh my god, it’s a bookstore.. (Leisure)
What it is..
This is a century old Dominican church in Maastricht that is built to bookstore Selexyz.
Two hundred years ago the church lost its religious function, and since then it had the function as a snake house, bicyclestabling and carnivalstemple.
The special interior was designed by architects Merkx + Girod
Why is it cool..
This church is totally different than normal. Usually a church used for church services but it is now a shop.
When you come in you are surprised and didn’t expext.
This shop is part of the sustainability trend. The church had no function and is easy to use for a shop. This is better and more durable than if you need to build a new building.
