The building was built in 1870 on ± 3.270 m2 consisting of two floors. The architecture is influenced by various cultures like Java with the form of high building, chinese culture with ceramic ornaments.

According to the people who lived around, during the process of development, it would be used floor tiles which were made of Gold Coin and it had been proposed to Dutch goverment. However, it was considered as a mockery since there was a picture of Dutch Queen Wilhelmina on the coin. Dutch goverment strictly did not allow and opposed it, since if it happened, the picture of the Dutch Queen would be stepped.
