The building

The villa was designed by the architect Ragnar Östberg and it was complete in 1906 for Colonel Wilhelm Aschan who led the local dragoons. Östberg designed a number of buildings in Umeå although he is known for building the Town Hall in Stockholm. Today the villa is used as a restaurant.

The wooden villa is designed in the National Romantic style similar to Scharinska Villa which had been built locally by the same architect the year before. The villa stands on a stone foundation and plinth.

The building has been listed since the 1980s. Östberg created one more building in Umeå and this was a theatre, built of timber and burned to the ground in 1913.
