More than 20 houses in which libraries are located have been restored in the capital. The work was carried out as part of the capital’s program for capital repairs of the housing stock, as reported in the Moscow municipal services complex.

Library No. 217

The program included the famous round building on Dovzhenko Street (house 6), where library No. 217 is located. This ring house with a diameter of 155 meters was built in 1976. There are 936 apartments in 26 entrances. The building is based on the design of a standard series sectional house. Architect Evgeny Stamo and engineer Alexander Markelov arranged 22 rectangular sections at an angle of six degrees to each other.

During the overhaul, the facade of the house was put in order, and a number of internal engineering systems were replaced. To restore buildings of this type, finished with small-sized tiles, polymer-cement mixtures on reinforcing meshes are used in the capital. At the first stage, the walls are washed, tapped and loosely glued tiles are removed. Next, a plaster-adhesive and at the same time reinforcing composition with a fiberglass mesh is applied to the façade, followed by a decorative and painting coating.

The internal facade of the house on Dovzhenko Street was painted white, and the external facade was painted yellow. In addition, specialists repaired balconies and entrance areas. New modern double-glazed windows were installed in common areas.

Library-media center No. 67

In the North-Eastern Administrative District, renovations took place in house 14 on Argunovskaya Street. The 12-story building was built in 1972 according to a standard design, which is characterized by uniform rows of trapezoidal loggias. In the annex to it there is a library-media center No. 67.

Specialists from the municipal services complex have tidied up the façade of the house. Before starting work, we created an individual project, in which we took into account all the architectural characteristics of the building and selected the appropriate materials and technologies.

The renovation began with a thorough cleaning of the façade. Next, the craftsmen rubbed the seams and treated the wet areas with antiseptic solutions. At the final stage, new plaster and paint were applied to the façade. In addition, the entrance areas were updated and the balconies were restored.

Library No. 172

On Novatorov Street, building 14 was restored, where branch No. 2 of library No. 172 is located.

An 18-story large-block building with glass balconies was built in 1972 according to a standard series design.

Specialists updated the façade and hot water supply lines. Polymer cement mixtures were applied to the walls using reinforcing mesh. With this technique, the house not only acquires a beautiful appearance, but also becomes more energy efficient.

After this, the building was painted patina green. Now it stands out even more strongly against the background of the area’s development, not only due to its height, but also because of its bright appearance.

The overhaul of the façade also included the renovation of balconies and loggias. New glass screens were installed here, floor tiles were replaced and the geometry of the panels was corrected.
