Skolegata 44 is a Swiss villa, several of which were built in the area around the centre of Tromsø. The façade is situated facing the street, the centre of town and Tromsø sound. The house is surrounded by a spacious garden, enclosed by white picket fencing on a grey supporting wall, built partly of natural stone and partly of concrete.

The house is built of wood, with white-painted horizontal panelling. There are two complete storeys and a usable loft under the steep (approx. 45-degree), slate-tiled roof. In the middle of the roof a gable roof has been built crosswise, and this covers the superstructure of the verandas on the ground and first floors at the front of the house. The veranda has carvings on its railings, pillars and corners. In the middle of the façade are double doors leading out onto the verandas on each level. Under the windows on the upper floor there is a horizontal band running right round the house, which defines each floor from the outside. Most of the windows are T-post windows, with the exception of some of the larger bay windows on the ground floor.
