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.

A healthy future

Sustainable estate

In the next few years Zonnestraal will develop into a place where people can live together in a healthy, happy and sustainable way surrounded by a resilient ecosystem.
Therefore we’ll revive the extraordinairy qualities and stories from the past. They will be linked with the present by a fresh approach and a focus on health. That’s how we will re-imagine the significance of Zonnestraal and continue to create a healthy future for the estate.
