The building was constructed in 1868-69 and was designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup and Fr. Bøttger according to a proposal from Ferdinand Meldahl (the architect of Copenhagen's Marble Church) inspired by the Palazzo Pandolfino in Florence. The top two floors were added to the building in 1939 by the architect Einar Madvig.
