Wandering Camera

Album 243
(Translated by
Lilya Sultanova)


This album will be dedicated to one curious building - the house of the architect N.N. Nikonov


As you may guess by the design of this building, Nikonov was fond of ancient Russian architecture.

Before he built this house, he designed and constructed merchant A.I. Gruzdev's house (house No. 53 on the Moskovsky Prospect), N.P. Bassin's house on Ostrovsky square, the facade of a house on the Dostoevsky street. Nikonov also elaborated the design of the church of the Lady of Kazan in Zelenogorsk (1913-1915.)

The house we are talking about was built in 1899-1900. It is now located on the Kolokolnaya street, No. 11.
A few contemporary changes in the decor :)
Let us now walk into the yard…
