Registration, archive review and research were conducted and the analyses summarised as a conservation guideline of the entire complex. As part of the process, Elgaard Architecture also initiated a preliminary dialogue with the Agency for Culture and Palaces as to the possibility of furnishing the property for new purposes.

The complex in Amaliegade 23-25 was originally built as two separate townhouses, which were later connected by an additional building. Amaliegade no. 23 was built by court architect Nicolai Eigtved in 1750-52, no. 25 by architect Lauritz de Thurah in 1755-57 and, most recently, the building in the middle was erected by Joseph Guione in 1787.
After many years as the Royal Danish Maternity Institution, the property passed to the state and was set up as offices for changing ministries. Most recently, the property was handed over to the real estate company Freja Ejendomme, which handled the final resale for the state.
