The buildingEdit

The embassy building was built in 1839 to be businessman J. H. Heidenstrauchs home. It became an embassy in the 1920s. It was originally designed by architect A. F. Granstedt, but after becoming an embassy, it was heavily changed. The architect of this was Swedish Torben Grut, who designed it to look like the Stockholm Palace.
