Dimitrie Ghica-Comanesti had chosen the well known french architect Albert Galeron as the designer for the palace which was finished in 1900. Albert Galeron, the first french architect who worked in Romania had designed also other important buildings in Romania: the Athene, the National Bank, and the train station of Comanesti. The choice of the french architect can be explained by the attempt to escape the orientalist style which was felt as oppressive and join the french culture. Galeron used the eclectic style for the Ghica palace,a style which combines different architectural elements in order to create something new and original from the contrasts such as old-new, classic-modern, darkness-light.
