The building was constructed in the 1750s to the design of F.-B. Rastrelli in the Baroque style. Constructing was directed by the architect S.I. Chevakinsky. In 1820-1828 V.P. Stasov rebuilt the building in the Classicism style. The considerable collection of rare exotic plants from America, Africa, India, Spain, the Middle East - coffee trees, cactuses, orange trees, collections of pineapples and laurels- were collected in the hothouse during the time. The garden master Iogan (John) Bush was one of the first scientist keeper of rare plant. In summer time vats with plants were put out in front of the Catherine Palace and along Sadovaya Street. Traditionally gardeners and other workers lived in the hothouse apartments. At different times I. Bush, Alexander I’s favourite F.F. Lyamin, Ch. Cameron, governors of Tsarskoye Selo Leontyev and Ya.V. Zakharzhevsky lived here. In 1933-1934 the architect V.I. Yakovlev adapted the building for the Institute of Dairy Industry. He used an unrealized project of V.P. Stasov.
