At first I thought this was a Photoshop picture, but it is not. It is a bookstore inside a 13th century Dominican church in Maastricht, Netherlands.

I like it if they did this to save/restore the building, rather than tear it down, but I don’t like the new architectural style within the old. It seems like it was just plunked into the building – oil and water sort of thing. And a commercial building inside a church somehow just doesn’t seem right to me. But again, if they did it to save the old structure, I’m willing to let it slide. (I’m sure the owners would be so glad to know that!) But they need to fire that interior designer.

    I’m with you. This seriously detracts from the beauty of the building!

Let me know what you think!
