Leif Grung (1928): Torvalmenning 7 (oil painting by Grung)
This was the first large (betong-)townhouse designed by Leif Grung. It’s situated at the central main square of Bergen. The commission was due to the grand city fire of January 15th 1916 (within the night it destroyed 380 buildings) On the two ground floors the commissioner himself – the merchant Christopher Bruun – had his grand store. The upper floors were in 1928 filled by offices, 4 doctors, menswear/women’s clothing), masseuse (!) and several ship owners, ship brokers and other brokers. In the three upper floors: apartments.
