Church renovated into bookstore in Holland

Built in 1924, this beautiful Dominican Cathedral located in Maastricht, Holland, is taking on a new life in the form of a modern bookstore. Architectural firm Merkx + Girod are behind the conversion project known as Selexyz Dominicanen Maastricht, which was a massive task with the space measuring some 1,200 sq. metres. Due to the Cathedral having high ceilings, the bookshelves were built up into multistory units to allow for maximum space utilization. Seems like a pretty inspiring place to purchase a book.
