Photographer's Note

This is one of the two cupcake-style outbuildings at the Riddarhuset, or House of Nobility, in Gamla Stan, Stockholm. The Riddarhuset was built in the mid-1600s by a French architect; the French influence is pretty clear both here and on the main building. It was used as a meeting place for Parliament for about 200 years, and today, according to Wikipedia, "it has been a private institution which maintains records and acts as an interest group on behalf of the Swedish nobility, its main purpose being to maintain old traditions and culture."

This outbuilding and its twin, out of frame to the left, appear to be homes to small companies, judging from the names on the doors.
