Asylet was built as a merchant yard around 1730 (annex 1798) in notched timber, with half-timbered and modified facade. From 1839 to 1865, the house was "an asylum for children" (hence the name, which means asylum in English), and from 1868 to 1903 it housed a hospital. In the period 1903-1965, the building housed a nursing home. It has also served as a courthouse and bank division (Akers Sparebank 1844 og Spareskillingsbanken 1851).
The building was conserved in 1967 and has been a ward house since 1992. Today, the building houses a café and restaurant with rental space and outdoor seating. In addition, various offices and workshops are also located in Asylet.
