      World's Most Beautiful Bookstore Completed in 2007 by Merkx + Girod Architecten, the Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore in Maastricht in the Netherlands is an incredible church conversion that was originally consecrated in 1294. Located between Maastricht’s two major squares (the Markt and the Vrijthof), the bookstore is run by a large Dutch chain in collaboration with the city council of Maastricht.SELEXYZ DOMINICANEN BOOKSTORE - © ROOS ALDERSHOFF

    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, was designed by architecture firm Merkx + Girod.

    "Polare Maastricht, a bookshop housed in a centuries-old Dominican church [in Maastricht, Netherlands] . . . . Dutch design firm Merkx and Girod made dramatic use of the huge space, creating multistory steel shelving." "Truly Novel Bookstores," by Jemima Sissons. Wall Street Journal (July 6 - 7, 2013).
