The building erected in 1938 consists of several parts. The left wing was constructed in second half of XIX-th century. At that time in Ust-Sysolsk there were basically wooden houses and only merchants could build stone private residences. The two-storeyed apartment house belonged to the merchant Suvorov.

The building has a symmetric facade with an eight-columned portico in the center. In the late 1930-1940 s it was the most beautiful construction in Syktyvkar symbolizing architecture achievements.

In the past May Day and October demonstrations were organized in front of this building, and its porch was used as a tribune.
