The gabled, two-storey house was built between 1893 and 1894 by the Düsseldorf architects Klein & Dörschel for the painter Theodor Rocholl. It was built in the Neo-Renaissance style and reflects the construction methods, forms and materials of rural architecture romanticising rural life with a round corner tower with a bell-shaped dome, bay window, natural stone plinth, half-timbering, shutters and crippled hip. In this way, the house also referred to the village structure of Golzheim that still existed at that time.

The Berlin Wall was a guarded concrete barrier that encircled West Berlin of the Federal Republic of Germany from 1961 to 1989, separating it from East Berlin and the German Democratic Republic. Construction of the Berlin Wall was commenced by the government of the GDR on 13 August 1961. It included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, beds of nails and other defenses. The primary intention for the Wall's construction was to prevent East German citizens from fleeing to the West.

For the first time, exposed concrete was used in the Düsseldorf residential building as a building material. The front house is two -storey, the rear building is one. A pent roof falls diagonally from the front to the back house. The facade on the street shows an asymmetrical composition of transverse windows. A window tape made of round windows is located above the entrance area. It is a motif from shipbuilding and comes from the exterior design of ocean vapors.
