The building is associated with the Sydney Sailors Home, a benevolent society that was formed by prominent businessmen and land owners. The 1860s wing of the building is associated with prominent architect William E Kemp, who worked in the Colonial Architects office under Edmund Blacket, Alexander Dawson and William Weaver and after a time in private practice later became architect for the Department of Public Instruction. Although altered, the wing remains as an example of his early work undertaken whilst in private practice.

The 1920s wing is associated with architectural firm Spain and Cosh, who were responsible for a number of prominent Sydney buildings which are representative of the evolution of architecture in Sydney over a span of some sixty years.
