* <see name="Kiosk" alt="" address="De Kei Square" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">This Kiosk looks like a design from Dudok, but it's actually designed by Bakker and Bakker and completed in 1931. Dudok's influence on these architects is clearly noticable. News papers and tobacco used to be sold here, but now it only shows touristic and cultural information on a computer screen. It was fully renovated in 1998 for its cultural and historic value. A short time ago it turned into a "snackbar", and also "pick-up point".</see>

It is one of the best examples of the New Objectivity style. Zonnestraal consists of one large main building, two smaller pavilions and some additional buildings that were added later, like the Koepel, which now functions as a visitors centre. The buildings are made of concrete and glass, in Duiker's typical colours of white, black and a specific kind of light-blue called 'Duiker blue'. The best way to explore this building is by taking the '''guided tour''' [http://www.hilversumgoedbekeken.nl/home/architectuur/sub-items-architectuur/426,2557/#volledigBericht]. Every last Sunday of the month, at noon and 2PM, you can take a 90-minute tour around the estate, starting from the Brasserie nr 15). Cost is €7.50, bring it with you in cash and hand it over to the guide when the tour starts.</see>
