Working at Zonnestraal,
where great views create beautiful insights.

The lungs and fresh breath of Hilversum, called so because of 120-hectare woodland estate and formed by the Zonnestraal national monument and heathlands between Hilversum and Loosdrecht. The famous complex, an iconic new building, has been restored in many different phases. The final phase was the transformation of the Dresselhuys Pavilion into a contemporary multi-company building. Working here is wonderful. Away from the hectic city and yet in the centre of the Randstad.


Zonnestraal is an iconic national monument designed by Jan Duiker, Bernhard Bijvoet and Jan Gerko Wiebenga in the 1920s, originally as a Hilversum sanatorium. The entire complex is made in a pioneering design from the ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ period, built between forest and the heathlands. For the municipality of Hilversum, this national monument is nowadays a proud heritage site.

Now you’ll find the complex is a bustling business park, with meeting rooms and space for the ideal off-site day set on the heath. Even if you don’t work or have a meeting here, there’s more than enough to experience. There is a brasserie with rooms for conventions and events, a vineyard, a grower, an estate store with an idyllic pick-your-own garden, care homes and even a wonderful campsite.



Dresselhuys Pavilion

The Dresselhuys Pavilions renovation is almost completed. It’s a multi-company building with a mix of offices in different sizes and different layouts. They are insulated and all refurbished to a very high-quality. The pavilion is a unique location for small businesses or freelancers, the smallest office unit is for one person. The offices will be leased from May 2020.


The Koepel is a striking round building, designed by Jan Duiker and Bernhard Bijvoet, the famous architects of the Nieuwe Bouwen movement in the 1920s. The monument has a lettable floor area of approximately 193 m², consisting of the ground and first floors. Partial rental is also possible.

Heroes of the hospital

The Coronavirus is turning our world upside down. We would like to shine some special light on the heroes who work in healthcare. For them no applause is deafening enough at this very moment. Doctors and nurses simply deserve the hero status. Just like those who worked at Zonnestraal, back in the days when it was still a sanatorium. ‘The strong for the weak against tuberculosis,’ said the collection boxes with which money was raised for Zonnestraal. Let’s be a responsible society, where the strong help the weak.
