The architectural expression of the building is typical of the period of historicism in European architecture in terms of plan, decoration and composition tables, with the object greatly highlighted Oriental elements. The emergence of these elements in Bitola is normal, when it comes to objects built during the period of Turkish rule.
Conceptually the object is built as a synthesis of palace and fortress. Elements of the palace are in the conception of space and masses, and the fortress is visible in the elements in monumental space and secondary decorative plastics derived in the form of cannon tubes.
Officer's house was location for Turkish, Serbian, Bulgarian, Yugoslav and Macedonian army.

Here once the door was opened only for generals and officers. Here is the only preserved ballroom in Bitola and luxurious chandelier from Skopje Army House, which was destroyed in the 1963 earthquake. Marshal Tito stayed here, Suleyman Demirel, chess player Karpov and others.
Recently several movies were recorded on this location and the Bitola summer festival “BitFest” every summer has activities within the object.
