I. I. Nekrasov Mansion

The right side of the boulevard is full of tenemenet houses that were built there in the early 20th century. The house with bas-reliefs depicting eagle-owls was built by the architect and ideologist of Moscow Art Nouveau Lev Kekushev in 1903. There are few Art Nouveau buildings left in the capital. It is believed that Kekushev completed all of his principal buildings in the first decade of the 20th century, and following that, the turbulent atmosphere of the times prevented the development of this grand style. The building has been a home to the Russian Committee of Veterans since 1968.
