The construction of the complex began in the 1930s and lasted for three years. Alexander Pasternak developed the project under the guidance of one of the leading theorists of constructivism Moisey Ginzburg. According to his conception, the experimental house was supposed to become a new residential community – economical, modern, very comfortable.
The complex comprises five buildings: one is an eight-storey building, the rest are six-storeys. All the objects are of geometrical nature, window bands, half-cylindrical corner windows.
