Rebranding a Dutch icon

For decades, the Oostwegel family have dedicated themselves to lovingly transforming architectural masterpieces into a collection of inspired hotels and restaurants. Set against the verdant backdrop of the Maastricht region, this collection offers a unique cultural experience and warm South Limburg welcome.

Guarding four unique establishments under the wings of the Oostwegel Collection was only possible by communicating a shared thread of esteemed quality whilst enabling each ‘house’ to tell their own story.
