Church converted into a Library (via @mymodernmet)

This is just a cool photo series and warrants a post:

One branch of the popular Dutch bookstore chain Selexyz can be found right inside of a 13th century Dominican church in Maastricht, Holland. The project known as Selexyz Dominicanen Maastricht, designed by architecture firm Merkx + Girod, exemplifies a brilliant union between the opposing aesthetics. The space maintains the church's architectural structure and definitive design attributes while inviting the contemporary stylings of a modern bookstore.
