A bit stubborn

Recamier is part of the new project Sphinx Zuid, a modern residential development in Maastricht’s Sphinxkwartier district. Once the home of Royal Sphinx’s imposing chinaware factories, the district will now offer a brand-new residential environment. Sphinx Zuid is located in Maastricht’s Sphinxkwartier district, close to where Maagdendries meets Achter de Barakken. The realignment of the Noorderbrug approach road has recently reconnected this area, traditionally an industrial zone, with the city centre. Which in turn has sparked a chain reaction of creative revival, unusual repurposing of historic buildings and artistic vitality. This renewed Sphinxkwartier has been called unpolished and offbeat, a neighbourhood where industrial heritage, urban design and informal green space rub shoulders. An exciting place to live for all ages.


The liveliness of the Sphinxkwartier also translates into a high level of amenities. A variety of restaurants and quirky lunch cafés are all located close to your new home, as are a cinema, a number of interior design boutiques and several DIY stores. Very convenient when you are moving in, of course, but you are also well catered for later on when you want to cook for yourself in your deluxe kitchen. Within cycling distance you will find Albert Heijn, Jumbo and Coop supermarkets. And more adventurous cooks can indulge themselves at Amazing Oriental of Persia. Everything Maastricht has to offer is also close at hand, including GP surgeries, a teaching hospital and the beautiful city centre with its wide range of shops. The nearest primary school is 500 metres from Sphinx Zuid, and within cycling distance you will find several childcare centres offering day care, crèche facilities and after-school clubs.
