Kompanihuset (Company house)

Kompanihuset was erected in 1540 according to an annual ring dating of the construction timber. Possibly the house was designed by Marten Bussert, Christian III's general contractor.

Kompanihuset is named after the Danish company which for a time owned the building. Floor plan, vaulted and clearly marked stair tower is the architectural solutions that also utilized in contemporary Malmöhus, where Marten Bussert probably was attached. Also in Kompanihuset , a lingering late Gothic seen in the exterior design, for example, in the end voice delay blind rings, while the interior is characterized by Renaissance standards of comfort and light. The color scheme of the exterior of the English red is typical of the time.
