The historic building houses 33 apartments, which are home to more than 100 people.
The overhaul of a residential building on Myasnitskaya Street is nearing completion. The eight-story building was built in 1912 by the architect Nikolai Kurdyukov as a tenement house. The customer was the Moscow Art Society.
It was a very modern building for that time. Central heating, sewerage, electricity were installed in the building, gas stoves were installed in the apartments. In addition, an elevator was installed.
The house stands out for its facade with window openings of various shapes and randomly located balconies. The building is crowned with triangular pediments. The arched canopies of the entrances repeat the shape of the driveway arch.
Now there are 33 apartments in which more than 100 people live.
During the major renovation, the facade of the house was cleared, the brickwork was restored and all the seams were painted. When restoring the window frames, wood was used. Visors, downpipes and basement were also repaired.
In addition, the specialists carried out a comprehensive repair of the roof: they replaced the worn out rafters, laid a new roof covering and mineral wool slabs. Wooden elements were treated with a fire retardant composition.
The basement was also repaired: the screed and the historic staircase were restored, the walls and ceiling were plastered.
All engineering systems in the house were replaced. The workers installed a new power supply network, replaced the sewerage, cold and hot water supply and heat supply systems.
The program of the Fund for the Overhaul of Moscow Apartment Buildings includes 383 cultural heritage sites. The task of specialists is to preserve the pristine beauty and architectural features of such buildings as much as possible. Now work is underway in 114 residential buildings-monuments, in 14 of them – restoration.
