Cathedral Into Bookstore

Historical building turned modern. Transforming a 15th century cathedral into a modern bookstore is no easy feat.

Done up by architect BK. Architecten, the church can be restored to its original condition by removing the three levels of retail space.

Considering how much constraints they must have faced and design it to balance the old and the new, the result is pretty amazing. I would love to spend a day there and take in the sight, smell the books and appreciate the fine piece of architecture marvel.
