A one-story residential house with a rectangular base built on the regulation line of Štrosmajerova Street. It forms a common inner courtyard with a courtyard residential building with a mansard at the bottom of the plot and buildings built around the perimeter of the plot. The base of the street building consists of two parts with a centrally placed hallway vaulted with a semi-shaped vault, paved with old format brick.
The left and right parts consist of two and three dark rooms with flat ceilings. The basement is located under the right part of the building. The building is built of brick, plastered and painted. The roof is complex, low and covered with pepper tiles. Over the front, street part, it is gabled, while towards the yard it is solved in the form of two single-gabled roofs that face each other over the passage itself, forming a bay. The courtyard building on the left has been converted into a residential building, plastered and painted. The building on the right, which serves as a storeroom for the tenants, is being demolished, built with bricks of the old format and unplastered. The building at the bottom of the plot is residential with a reconstructed attic-mansard on one floor. The roof has vertical skylights and is covered with pepper tiles.
The street facade is symmetrically arranged with a centrally placed slight elevation accentuated by a rectangular entrance framed by plastered, rustically processed “carvers” with which the edges of the building are flanked. Above the attic cornice there is an attic with a slightly higher central part in the width of the eaves, with simple plaster plastic in the form of rectangular fields. A double-leaf timber gate with a fixed timber above has a central molded molding finished with a capital and a characteristic ironwork and lock with a lyre-shaped bronze crest.
The entrance step is stone, according to its dimensions and specific profile, it was most likely the frame of the window opening. On both sides of the entrance there are two windows in stepped profiled frames with an accented bank and architrave and recessed rectangular fields in the parapets. The plastic decoration in the attic cornice and the fields under the window architraves is composed of motifs made according to the model, in stucco or plaster, and corresponds to the age of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.
The woodwork of the window on the left side is more recent, but its geometry corresponds to the older one preserved on the right side, while the entrance door of the right apartment was replaced with an inadequate one made of PVC.
Spatial characteristics of the base of the building indicate that it is a two-story house of traditional, rural architecture, which in the reconstruction carried out at the end of the 19th or beginning of the 20th century was united by a common facade and roof, like the buildings at no. 9, 14 and 16.
