O. G. Piotrowicz's House

Olgierd Piotrowicz was a prolific architect, and had built quite a few tenement houses in Moscow. But this specific building, with its Art Nouveau-like exteriors, stands out among his other works. The building is vertically divided by stucco frisos that tell some rather unusual stories. One of them depicts a naked woman floating among the waves and dolphins with a child. The other one portrays a woman with a little angel blowing a horn. The building belonged to Prince Nikolai Obolensky who rented it out, while living in his own mansion at Sivtsev Vrazhek. In recent years, the building's owners added several floors and rent them out as offices.
