The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is the national audiovisual archive of Dutch broadcasters. The institute is established in a strikingly colorful building in the Media Park in Hilversum. The building's seven stories are the perfect setting to lose yourself in the world of media. It includes an experience center, offices, a large theater hall, a smaller theater hall, a café with a terrace, a shop and a car park.

 

Sound and Vision is a fantastic day out. Together with Keijsers, the designers carefully examined how the interior would be used. In the two theater halls, a variety of exhibitions, symposia and book presentations are held, so Keijsers installed red, green and blue LED lighting in these halls, enabling all conceivable color temperatures and patterns.

 

The Grand Café features a variety of eye-catching buffets, counters and seating facilities. The 'school canteen' is equipped with modern fixed benches and tables and a descending area of the central hall, which resembles a staircase, has been designed as a charming terrace. Keijsers was responsible for constructing these designs.
