The building was built in 1957 and is a classic example of the building of that time.

The house on Volokolamskoe highway, where the Perekrestok song theater was located, will be overhauled. The building was built in 1957 according to an individual project and is a classic example of the building of that time.

The house was erected at a time when architects began to abandon excesses, so there are no pompous decorations here. The sixth floor is framed with molding – a decorative element in the form of a profile strip. Also on the ninth floor there is a neat curly cornice.

The entrance windows are made in the form of arches, and the balconies from the courtyard side resemble semicircular wicker vases. The entrances are decorated with triangular sandriks – simple cornices in the form of shelves. The building itself has the shape of an asymmetrical letter P. You can get into the courtyard through the arches located on the sides.

The locals gave this house the nickname “four doors”. The fact is that earlier on Volokolamskoe highway there were doors of four shops-sections, in which clothes, fabrics, shoes and haberdashery were sold.

In the basement there was a red corner with a stage and a small auditorium. Meetings of residents were held here, performances and children’s parties were held. There was also the Perekrestok song theater under the direction of the poet and musician Viktor Luferov. It was one of the few places in the capital where author’s songs were constantly performed.

Overhaul of the house on Volokolamskoe highway will take place this year. The facade of the house will be put in order – specialists will not only repair the building, but also preserve its historical appearance.

Repair work will take place in strict accordance with all standards and regulations. If residents have any complaints or questions about the overhaul, they can contact by phone: +7 (495) 695-64-20.
