Situated in Hilversum, Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is one of the largest audiovisual archives in Europe with its collection of more than 750,000 hours of television, radio, music and film. The institute manages over 70 percent of the Dutch audiovisual heritage. All programs of the Dutch public broadcasters come in digitally every day.
Saint-Gobain Glassolutions has installed a façade with the surface of 5000m², which became one of the biggest projects of Glassolutions with CREA-LITE. The colorful and moulded glass shows a high luminous transmission by keeping at the same time a guaranteed privacy. Listening to the sounds coming around the world, standing in the inverted image of glass, CREA-LITE creates a perfect atmosphere for visitors to be personally on the scene.

The new building for the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision consists of five levels under ground and five levels above ground. In the underground, the national archives of Dutch radio and television recordings are stacked around a deep canyon. Above ground, a staged volume contains the media museum. The third element is the office building of the institute. The three volumes together enclose a large public atrium. The facade of the building is a screen of coloured relief glass that depicts famous images of Dutch television, a composition by graphic designer Jaap Drupsteen. Support: Bureau Bouwkunde
