Maastricht, The Netherlands
Located in the picturesque Kommelplein Square in central Maastricht, the Kruisheren Hotel is a remarkable conversion of a Gothic church and monastery, a tour de force synthesising the original 15th-century architecture and dressed – down modernism.
The 60 guestrooms are designed with different styles. However, in such a historic building, nostalgia would be an eternal theme. Large black-and-white pictures spread on the walls, demonstrating the cultural history of the building and the city to guests. A bright-colour palette is combined, integrating a metropolitan air with the historic building. The orange chairs and the brick-red wall represent the encounter of tradition and fashion.
