    Proving that contemporary styles can be perfectly matched with late-medieval architecture, the designers of Kruisherenhotel Maastricht have come up with many innovative solutions for various structural challenges, including such highlights as the glass elevator connecting the church to the monastery area. The sixty-room complex consists of the original monastery as well as a Gothic church, which now houses the reception area and several hotel facilities, including conference rooms, a library, a boutique, a restaurant, and a wine bar. Another spectacular feature is the newly installed mezzanine, where guests are served breakfast while taking in views of Maastricht through the chancel windows. The "espace vinicole" is no less stunning, both for its impressive offering of wines as well as the strikingly large glass vault which houses them. The interior is matched by beautiful monastery gardens – a haven in the midst of a vibrant city center.

    Architecture

    Respecting a celebrated past

    Fusing the austere Gothic with chic modern design, the Kruisherenhotel opens straight into the inner shell of a 15th century monastery. Situated in a beautiful spot right on the picturesque Kommelplein square, an almost forgotten location that has been given a new lease of life with greenery, art, café terraces and shops. Uninhabited since 1979, the structure has been transformed into a remarkable blend of original Gothic exterior with a sleek, inconspicuous interior. 

    Interior Design

    Henk Vos

    Henk Vos created an individual contemporary character for each accommodation, using various color schemes, styles and furnishings. Resting on basic principles of transparency, space, modernity and comfort, the interiors are enhanced by exciting contrasts from the stained glass windows to the stunning, authentic wall and ceiling paintings. The overall result is visually challenging, paying tribute to contemporary architectural design while honoring age-old construction and detailing.

    Camille Oostwegel

    Camille Oostwegel is every inch a Limburg hotelier. As a young boy, he developed a passion for history, culture, and gastronomy. In 1969, he began his studies at the Hotel Management College in Maastricht, before working at various branches of Novotel. During this time he quickly became operations director and advisor for the first Novotel branches outside France. Oostwegel returned to Limburg and made his debut as an independent entrepreneur, starting with his first restaurant, Kasteel Erenstein. All of his hotels and restaurants are housed in monumental buildings that he restored to their former glory, including the Kruisherenhotel Maastricht, where smart design lives between heaven and earth.
