History

The Jan von Osten House at Amaliegade was purchased by Johan Frederik Classen in 1770. After his death in 1792, the property was taken over by Det Classenske Fideicommis. In the early 1870s, the foundation charged Vilhelm Tvede with the design of a residential project for the garden. He designed a single row of terraced houses inspired by English architecture. It was built in 1873–74. The houses were originally rented out but were sold off individually in the 1970s. Former residents include the architect Hans Munk Hansen.

Architecture

The terrace consists of nine terraced houses. The main entrances face a courtyard situated between the terrace to the east and the Jan van Osten House to the west. Rach house has an area of approximately 400 square metres and consist of three storeys, attic and basement.

The houses were listed in 1978. The scope of the heritage listing was expanded in 2002 to include the pavement and granite curb in the courtyard.
