The Art Nouveau building was built in 1905.
On the Arbat, a major overhaul of the house of the clergy of the Jerusalem Patriarchal Metochion has been completed.
Experts carefully cleaned and put in order all the decorative elements, restored the brickwork and filled the weathered seams. Then the building was plastered, returning its historical color. In the entrance groups, wooden doors were installed that harmoniously fit into the overall architectural style. In the entrances, all the chips on the steps of the stairs were restored with two-component mixtures. The railings have also been updated. All low-voltage wires, if possible, were removed into decorative boxes.
In addition, the systems of water disposal, heat supply and cold water supply were completely updated.
The apartment building of the Jerusalem Patriarchal Compound is located at the address: Filippovsky Lane, building 18. It was built in 1905. The Art Nouveau building is a valuable city-forming object. It has five floors and the same number of entrances. In 1930, a superstructure appeared near the building. Adjacent to it is a neighboring house.
The profitable house was erected on the land of the Jerusalem Compound, next to the Church of the Apostle Philip at the Arbat Gate.
Among the interesting details of the building is a coat of arms with a five-pointed star placed between the third and fourth floors. Most likely, the star appeared already in the Soviet years, and earlier, instead of it, on the shield of the coat of arms, there was presumably an cuvukliya of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and below – two intersecting keys.
