Dutch Media Authority
The Dutch Media Authority, called "Commissariaat voor de Media", upholds the rules which are formulated in the Dutch Media Act as well as in the regulations based on this act. This is done by the providing of information beforehand and by subsequent supervision. Fairness and consistency are the Commissariaat’s basic principles in enforcing the Media Act. The activities of the Commissariaat focus on both public service and commercial broadcasters and on cable operators. The building for this institution stands on a slope in-between trees, at the border of the Media-park. The existing trees have been maintained, and some of them grow through the overhanging construction at the entrance. The interior circulation is organised at the façade, where the corridors are situated. One side has stairways which bridge the gentle slope, on the other side the difference in height has been crossed by a talud. The building has several patio’s. They provide ample daylight and places for lunch-breaks.
