The building is located northwest of Malmöhus Slott. Typical of the former military architecture, the Kommendanthuset was built in classicist style. The red-painted facade of the two-storey building is fully plastered and the roof is covered with copper plates. At the ground floor, you can find a small ecologically café.
Kommendanthuset is built.
A military hospital is established on the first floor and the ground floor serves as a storage room. Soon afterwards, the whole building is transformed completely into an arsenal again.
Malmöhus Castle is now a prison and the prison commander uses the building as its home - which becomes the Kommendanthuset.
The building is used as emergency shelter for homeless people between the first and second world war.
Kommendanthuset is getting restored and obtains its original appearance.
