Counter Admiral Edouard Suenson (1805–1887)—commemorated for his role in the Battle of Heligoland—was among the residents from 1868 to 1880. The painter Otto Bache resided in an apartment in the rear wing from 1873 to 1882 and again from 1887 to 1888. His studio was also located in the building. Another artist, Edvard Weie, was a resident in the side wing from 1929 to 1930.[17]

Otto Erichsen and Jacob Johan Simonsen opened a dairy shop in the building in 1878. It was from 1935 continued by O. Sørensen (born 1899) under his own name. The shop was for a while appointed as purveyor to the Court of Denmark.[18]

Architecture

edit

Store Kongensgade consists of four storeys over a raised cellar and is seven bays wide. An antemion frieze—with alternating palmette and lotus flower decorations growing from a nest of achantus leaves—runs under the windows on the first floor and the facade is finished by a dentillated cornice. The roof is clad with black tiles and features four dormer windows towards the street. A gateway topped by a fanlight with palmette decorations in the right-hand side of the building opens to a narrow courtyard. A chamfered corner bay connects the rear side of the building with a 12-bay side wing along the southern side of the courtyard. A passageway through one of the two adjoining rear wings at the other end of the courtyard opens to a second courtyard with a former stable with a tall gabled dormer.[1]
