13th Century Church Converted to Modern Day Library in Holland

Church conversions have crossed our desks in the past, but nothing quite extravagant as this old cathedral that has been converted into a modern book store.
Located in Maastricht, Holland this 13th century Dominican church has been transformed by the architectural firm Merkx + Girod in a project known as Selexyz Dominicanen Maastricht. The massive 1,200 square meter church was built all the way back in 1294, and although it has been updated for modern-day use it still maintains many of the original characteristics and design elements. Due to the enormous height of the structure, the design team decided that building multi-story bookshelves vertically was the best utilization of space.
