Selexyz Bookstore
Client: Boekhandels Groep Nederland
Location: Maastricht
Architect: Merkx+Girod Architecten

Selexyz Dominicanen, as it is called, is located in the city’s old Dominican Church. After many months of renovation the magnificent building is finally ready for its new purpose.

The upper floors, which are soon to become accessible to the public, will certainly offer a spectacular view of the premises. At the back of the church clients and visitors can sit and admire the beautifully renovated ceiling frescoes, while enjoying a nice warm cup of tea or coffee…

In order to emphasise the medieval origins of the Dominican Church, there was a small medieval market at the entrance of the building. Visitors were also entertained with fighting demonstrations and medieval music.
