The Shoemaker Institution

The building was erected as an institution with 31 small one-room flats along outside corridors. Today the institution is thoroughly renovated, and the small flats have been joined to form large dwellings. Parts of the building's original interior construction have been preserved.
The gable towards Istedgade originally had a gable dormer with arches and a twisted pinnacle like the one on the side facing Gasværksvej, but the middle gable dormer was destroyed by a storm in 1942 and changed into its present appearance.
