The house on Halytska street 20 (old conscription number 330, new conscription number 299) was built in place of the former defensive ditch behind the Halytska gate, in front of the guardhouse. According to the resolution of the Lviv city executive committee number 130 dated 26 February 1980, the house was entered in the local register of monuments under protection number 65-M. Today the ground floor premises are rented by various owners for commercial activities; in particular, “Emporio” clothes shop and a bank are situated there.

The rental house that was constructed under a project drawn up by architects Józef Sosnowski and Alfred Zachariewicz in 1910 is one of the best monuments of Art Nouveau architecture in Lviv. According to the resolution of the Lviv regional executive committee number 130 dated 26 February 1980, the house was entered in the local register of monuments under protection number 66-M. As for today, it is used as a residential and office building; Svit Publishing House, a lawyer’s office and the City Administration of Social Protection of Population are housed there.

The fountain was installed at this place in the 1970s after the redevelopment of a park in Halytska Square. Recently (2008) it has been renovated and now functions in summertime. Author of the design was Oleh Mykyta.
