Štúrova 5 was designed in a Classical / Neoclassical style that is characterized by grandeur of scale, simplicity of geometric forms, use of columns and a preference for blank walls. When looking from outside, couple of these characteristics can be immediately spotted: a balcony with a balustrade and two figural sculptures (that is situated right above the main entrance) or tall Doric columns contributing to the neoclassical spirit. The façade is made of regular stone cladding with details such as stone medallions and portraits

Already one of the most beautiful streets in the capital – that time known as Barros street, was further uplifted by the construction of the first iron bridge across the Danube River in Bratislava.
A nostrification law was passed in the First Czechoslovak Republic, resulting in the establishment of the Slovak General Credit Bank – upon completion headquartered in Sturova 5.
The period 1920-1930 meant further development of the street. Grand and magnificent buildings were built, among them building Sturova 5 (1921 – 1923 ).
