chateau st estate a pavilionOn the Chateau St. estate a pavilion with a very special role and appearance has been built. The pavilion stands in between two historic buildings and with its natural design it has the requisite connection with its environment. Various rooms in the pavilion, including the warmly and classically furnished entrance hall, have been fitted with solid wood Derako grill ceilings. Château St. Gerlach is an estate near Maastricht, in the centre of the undulating Limburg countryside: a unique complex with a luxury hotel, restaurant and spa. Mecanoo architects designed a pavilion that connects the historic buildings, including the Château (1661), the St. Gerlachus church (1727) and the farmhouse with it's inner courtyard (1668).
