It is situated in one of the best known residential districts of Bilbao: the Paseo del Campo Volantín alongside the estuary. Built by the architect Julián de Zubizarreta in 1894, this palace was the residence during the 1950's for the family of José María de Olábarri, an important businessman of the time. It is an admirable building in which French and English influences meet, as, for example, in its floor designed in an L shape, with noteworthy interior proportions. It was also occupied by the British Institute and since 1953 has been the headquarters of the Puerto Autónomo de Bilbao (Bilbao's Port Authority).
