Design between heaven and earth
Situated in the centre of Maastricht is the former Kruisheren cloister, dating from the fifteenth century. Together with the monumental gothic church, this complex has been transformed into a very special designer hotel. The hotel boasts 60 modern rooms. The nave of the church contains a mezzanine with a restaurant area. The former nave also houses reception, the lobby, three lounge corners (in the former side chapels), three modern boardrooms, a library, a glass lift and the wine bar with a very special “wine cellar” above ground.
The interior has been created by the internationally renowned interior designer Henk Vos. The beautiful pieces of light installation artwork is created by the German light installation artist Ingo Maurer. Throughout the complex, use has been made of the notable designs of masters such as Le Corbusier and Rietveld as well as modern designers like Marc Newson, Piet Heyn Eeck, Philippe Starck and Roderick Vos. These designs form exciting contrasts with the stained glass windows and the stunning, authentic wall and ceiling paintings.
