The National Archives building was built as a residence in 1760 by Reiner de Klerk, who became the governing general of the Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC), Dutch United East India Company, in 1777. Reiner de Klerk's residence was constructed as a compound of five buildings. The main building is a stately two-storey, brick structure with a high pitched roof and features a grand entrance hall and a beautifully decorated light vent above the main doors. The other buildings in the complex are smaller but are similar in style and were built as administrative offices and to house servants.

Over its history the complex has changed hands a number of times. After the death of Reiner de Klerk the buildings were sold and later became an orphanage. The complex was subsequently abandoned and was left to deteriorate until the Dutch colonial Government converted it for use by the Mining Department. In 1925 the main building was renovated and became the Landsarchief (national archive). When the Indonesian Government took over the building upon Independence in 1945, it continued to function as an archive and has since been known as 'Gedung Arsip Nasional Republic Indonesia' (the National Archive Building of the Republic of Indonesia). The Indonesian Government expanded the compound with the addition of a two-storey u-shaped building, joined to the rear auxiliary building. The building's function continued until the mid nineteen-eighties when the archives were relocated to a more modern building. The complex then became vacant and steadily deteriorated until restoration work began in 1997
