The foundation of the former building of a premonstratensian wash house (economic headquarters) consists of a ground-floor house from the beginning of the 17th century. However, the exterior of the building is a result of an extended reconstruction from the third quarter of the 18th century. According to the layout of the ground floor, the building was constructed during late Renaissance reconstructions of the canonry. This is supported by a prospectus by Filip van der Boshe from 1606, as well as Ouden-Allen's prospectus from the years 1680 - 85. In the first half of the 18th century, Ditzler's view of Strahov shows the building as we know it today, as a one-storied building with a saddle roof and a triangular gable. The building was named "lotorium", i.e. the Wash House.
At the end of the 18th century, the house became the residence of the economic director and thus it was clad in a new, late Baroque facade. The first floor of the house was adjusted according to plans approved in 1966. At the same time, a roof apartment was added. In 1960, a garage was built in the yard, which was accessible from the Strahov court-yard through a newly cut driveway with a segmented closure. Another reconstruction took place in 1992, when the ground floor rooms were adjusted. This reconstruction lasted until 1994. Further minor reconstructions took place in 1999 and included a room on the ground floor and the apartment on the first floor. The building was finally reconstructed in the years 2005-6 and now serves for accommodation purposes.
