A one-story residential and commercial building covers the corner of Beogradska and Lisinski streets. It forms a common inner courtyard with the ground-floor residential house at Lisinskij Street 4. It was built in the second half of the 18th century, or more precisely in 1792, if we take the year engraved in the frieze field of the facade from Lisinski Street as the date of construction (above the first window on the far left are the numbers 1 and 7, above the second 9 and 2, and the initials “FJK ” in the very corner).
The specific plastic decoration preserved to the greatest extent in the floor area, characteristic of Baroque architecture, shows a stylistic similarity with the object at number 3, as well as the objects on Bishop Nikolaja Square.
The house has a base in the shape of the Latin letter “L”, with a shorter wing along the right furrow. There is an office space on the ground floor, and three apartments on the first floor.
The vaulted basement occupies almost the entire base of the building, but is not used. The entrance is from Beogradska Street, moved to the right.
The inner corridor under spherical vaults supported by split ports leads to the wider vestibule of the former open porch that stretches along the courtyard facades of the building.
The floor is a combination of brick and stone slabs. On the left side there is a double staircase to the first floor with wooden treads, as well as a double basement door with characteristically shaped wrought iron fittings.
Shallow stucco ornamentation has been preserved on the vaults of the corridor and staircase.
All rooms on the ground floor are under semi-shaped vaults with vaulted branches, while on the first floor, except for parts of the former porch which is under spherical vaults, they have flat ceilings.
The street facades are richly decorated with characteristic shallow plaster plastic that follows the basic division of the wall canvas surfaces shaped by the given rhythm of openings, pilasters and drawn plastic profiles of cornices and window frames. In the fields of the attic frieze, pilasters and parapet fields, profiled ornaments of different geometric shapes are carved, which change in a regular rhythm in relation to the axes of the facades, while the fields of the wall cloth between the openings are decorated with plaster decoration in the form of strips that form closed curvilinear forms dropped from the plane of the facade .
In the area of the ground floor, the facades have been significantly changed by punching openings, and the plaster plastic has been reconstructed. The entrance to the building has been preserved in its original form – an architecturally finished opening with a rectangular skylight closed by a wrought-iron lattice in a diagonal mesh. The entire opening with a skylight is in a stone profiled frame, the upper edge of which ends in volutes.
The door is double-leaf, cased with characteristic wrought iron fittings. Some of the window openings are bricked-blind, while the double-wing ones with jambs have been preserved, three of which on the main street are kibitz-fensters, all with wings that open into the field.
On one of them, the inner decorative grille made of wrought iron is visible. Basement openings are in stone frames, closed with wrought iron grates. The roof is extremely high, covered with pepper tiles with five preserved original vertical chimneys.
