“The place to be at Thursday and Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday all day. Local beers are served. This beautiful building was built over a hundred years ago as a car garage and showroom for the well-being of Hilversum and its environs. Autopalace De Wit was a progressive building and radiated optimism and opulence. It was a modern open building with a huge free span with a thin scale roof of concrete. In 1912 Concrete was really a new building material and only a few of these large scale roofs were made. It was designed in the Art Nouveau style, overblown from Paris. Not much later the building was put into use as a Dutch signal factory and the building forms the basis of the development of broadcasting city Hilversum as the centre of the Netherlands for Radio & Television. Years later, the building was used as a party hall Trianon and a Casino with cinema. In the last years the building was known as the Eurocinema. There was nothing more visible from the original Art Nouveau architecture. The building had fallen completely in decline over the years. It was like a rectangular ' box ' wrapped with shabby façade plating. Also on the inside there was nothing visible from the scale roof with large rooflights. The Euro cinema was perhaps the ugliest building in Hilversum in one of the most prominent places in the city centre. The building was almost demolished, but luckily all forces are united to maintain this building. The façade in Art Nouveau style has been restored. Existing residues have been made visible again and many elements have been reduced to original design. The beautiful scale roof has been restored and the windows in the roof are opened again. Some new features have been added, which are a nice contrast to the original architecture. With the new façade on the market side and expansion on the side, the building opens into the city. In short: MOUT gives new life to this beautiful building. ”

“The rich history of Meddens begins in 1830. The Meddens family came from Groningen. The company was at that time specialised in the manufacture of corsets. After a trip to Paris, Bernard I. Meddens, together with his father, opened a ' herenkleding warehouse ' in the Hoogstraat in Rotterdam on 1 May 1830. Nouveautés from Paris fell in the taste of the Dutch public. In 1899 Meddens opened the second business at a beautiful point in the Haagse Binnenstad, between Lange Pooten and Spuistraat. When Jan Giesbers, a cousin of Meddens, took office in 1923 as director, branches were joined in Amsterdam, Arnhem, Leidschendam and Hilversum. Meddens proved her resilience during the bombardment of Rotterdam in 1940, leaving the ruined building and immediately opening an emergency building on the new Binnenweg in Rotterdam. On 1 May 1980 Meddens, after 150 years, got the predicate ' royal ' and had the fashion house include an honorable crown in her logo. Meddens is the new hotspot of Hilversum. With a total area of 600 m2 spread over several floors with a terrace of 250 m2, Meddens offers enough space for an accessible hospitality concept where everyone will feel at home. Meddens is tough, industrial and vintage with a touch of New York Style, but with a warm and accessible look. With the Bar & Kitchen concept, we want to create the ideal combination of drinks and food, where the large central bar, suitable for hikers and eaters, will play an important role. Meddens is an all-day catering company: lunch, drinks and dinner. The map shows 70% fish from Fruit de mer to fish & chips with various choices in meat and vegetarian dishes. These dishes are freshly prepared by a team of top chefs in an open kitchen, which creates a huge food experience. This food experience of daily freshly delivered food combined with fine wines in a beautiful ambiance will provide everyone with a great restaurant experience.”
