The gods must be shining down on Zwolle, a small town outside of Amsterdam.

The Dutch bookshop  Waanders In de Broeren has recently moved to town and set up shop in a 15th century gothic catederal!

BK. Architecten has created a beautiful bookshop within a beautiful space without comprising or altering the integrity of the cathedral.
