This residence is situated on a level expanse on a slope above the Tromsø town centre. It has a magnificent view of the town, Tromsø Sound and the mountain Tromsdalen. The surrounding area is characterised by a residential area, situated on a steep slope. It is a two-storied house with a basement, has a rectangular shaped plan, and terminates with a slightly saddled roof. The structure stands on a white plastered foundation wall and is clad on the exterior with horizontal panelling that is painted yellow. The main entrance is located in a vestibule on the north side of the house. This vestibule has a round window - a typical feature from Functionalism. Windows such as this can be seen in many Tromsø houses built during this period. On the first-storey, towards the south, there is a glass enclosed veranda.
