The house of the lawyer Ioan Bârzan entered construction during the first years of the 20th century (1902), some sources showing that it was finished after the First World War, at the start of the 1920’s. The lawyer Ioan Bârzan was an important member of the Constanța bar, and in the years that the house was finished, 1923-1924, he was leading the legal publication “Justiția Dobrogei” (directors being I.C. Teodorescu Valahu and Calms Ginsberg), its editorship being on Carol Street, no. 7.

The immobile is majestic, being a typical example of French Empire architecture, specific to the second half of the 19th century. The house is individualized by the double attic, a first level with large windows, with deep volutes in the masonry and with laced elements in the stone, and an upper level, with small windows.

The building has a ground floor, which displays a majestic entrance, destroyed in the present, and an upper floor with a balcony going along the length of the building, made out of embroidered stone. It is one of the Constanța’s most complete buildings made in the french architectural style.
