Situated in the centre of Maastricht is the former 15th century Kruisheren (Crutched Friar) monastery. Together with the monumental Gothic church, this complex has been transformed into a very special designer hotel. It is a unique place, in which antiquity and modern design are interwoven; yet, at the same time, architectural contrasts between the past and the present are very clear. The designers often walk the tightrope between dignity and blasphemies. During the French Revolution, it served as a barracks and arsenal. Early last century, Victor de Stuers esquire and the architect Cuypers took pity on the complex of buildings, which had fallen into a state of disrepair. Following major renovations, the buildings were put into use as a National Agricultural Research Station. Late in 2000, Camille Oostwegel took the initiative to save this unique building from ruin. Large-scale renovations transformed it into a luxurious, contemporary designer hotel, retaining respect for the past.
