The Post Office Conversion by Wiel Arets Architects

Sited at the edge of the Vrijthof square in the center of Maastricht, the Post project is 19 short-stay apartments hidden within a Dutch brick building – a post office originally constructed in 1915.

With the exception of these protected elements (cast iron balustrade, balconies façade), the building was completely stripped of its original structure and interior divisions. The result is 19 minimalist hotel-apartments with courtyard, provides loft living in the historical structure.

Inspiration from architect:

The building is organized around a central circulation route, which begins in its courtyard and continues through to its the main staircase. Each new apartment is unique in both orientation and layout, imparting hotel-like living within the center of this ancient Roman city.
