The inhabitant of Aachen and Master Builder, Couven, constructed the building in 1783 following the model of a townhouse of the nobility for the cloth manufacturer, M.P.W. Troistorff. In an acceptance of the times, the half-timbered house was plastered and decorated with ornamentation. Rich carvings in the doors with supraports and artistic wrought-iron works in the banister and balcony railing testify to the splendour and prosperity of the inhabitants.
