Vestregate 28 is the end building of a row of old wooden houses just north of the beginning of the street Kongsbakken in the centre of Tromsø. The house has two main storeys, attic and basement. As it is built on sloping land its Vestregate facade has a tall exposed basement wall with stairs leading up to the ground floor’s front door. The entrance from the back yard is on ground level. The footprint is organized around the central entrance axis and the building is an example of late empire-style.
