Reinslettveien 32
The former county governor's residence was designed for receptions and other official functions and this is reflected in both its size and layout. It is surrounded by a large park-like garden with trees and lawns and this is what meets visitors coming from the city centre.

The house has two full storeys, its main facade faces the park and the town, and the big roof is a hipped slate roof with curved sprocketed eaves. The large windows with central mullions and square panes are representative of the 1920s' Nordic classicism. However, there are some details signalling the arrival of functionalism (early Nordic modernism) such as the garden room's, the large corner window and the way the terrace wall is a continuation of the building's foundation walls built in natural stone.
