Translation of the text on the sign:
[The text in the Swedish language is more detailed, so its translation is presented here]

The department store was built in 1912-15 for AB Nordiska Kompaniet, formed in 1902 for an exclusive clientele through a merger between K M Lundberg’s department store at Stureplan and Joseph Leja at Regeringsgatan. The architect was Ferdinand Boberg. The building has a load-bearing frame of steel and a facade of granite. The glass-covered light garden has partially preserved its original decor. Since 1991, NK has been a real estate company with independent specialist businesses.
