Residential house for a very rich family, from the wealthy class of Constanța before the First World War. The house is built in a purely neo-romanian style, constituting one of the most representative and beautiful buildings of this architectural type in Constanța. Built in two floors, with specific balconies, worked with brâncoveanu type columns and arches, all made of stone, the house is equipped with a tower-attic, very beautifully made, with a bell shaped roof. The immobile has an opening facing the Vântului Lane, the second narrowest street in Romania (behind Sforii Street in Brașov), only two meters wide, and which was mentioned in the traveling memoirs of the renowned danish writer Hans Christian Andersen after his short visit of Constanța, in the middle of the 19th century.
