Designed by Ludvig Peterson, the building was completed in 1898. The facade overlooking the street is finished in Portland limestone with intricate details, including wall openings, a crowning balustrade, clover-leafed windows and mosaics. The architecture is inspired by Italian and Spanish trends from the 16th century. The interior includes the entrance hall, a staircase and the richly stuccoed exhibition hall. The restaurant area consists of a dining room, a bar, and a banqueting hall decorated with wall paintings from a renovation in 1931. The entire building is decorated by the works of celebrated artists and craftsmen.
