Round House

Valery Matytsin/TASS

The residential multiple-apartment house on Aleksandrovskaya street is a constructivism monument built in 1932. The architect Mikhail Kondratiev built it within the frames of an experiment: maximum durability with minimum construction materials. A specific feature of the house, along with the great acoustic particularities of the closed courtyard, is the balcony, which is accessible from all the apartments of the higher floors.
