This apartment with Russian avant-garde interiors and a fantastic view of a Stalin era high-rise is a true time machine. Located in a historical constructivist building, carefully restored and fully equipped with authentic and reconstructed furniture, lights and tableware, it will transfer you to 1930's utopia. The apartment is located in the center of Moscow, three steps from the metro station «Krasnye Vorota» (the Red Gates)

The space
The apartment is located in a house built in 1932 — the era of Bauhaus and Russian avant-garde, and is designed by the famous constructivist architect Ivan Nikolaev. This giant building was inhabited by employees of the People's Commissariat of Railways, many of whom still live here now. The apartment is located in the center of Moscow, three steps from the metro station «Krasnye Vorota» (the Red Gates). The Red Square is just 3 metro stations away or 20 minutes by foot — down the most attractive walking streets of the historical center.

The interiors and many details of the apartment miraculously survived and were carefully restored, including color solution of the walls, window frames, doors and parquet. Furniture is made according to the exact designs of the 1920s and 1930s, most of which remained only the concepts of avant-garde artists of that era. Guests of the apartment will be the first to see their exact replicas and will be able to use them for their pleasure. Here you can live a unique experience of the great utopia of the Soviet avant-garde.

The courtyard of the house is very quiet, so nothing will distract you from immersion in another era.

Where you’ll be

Moskva, Russia

Walking along the lively streets, quiet lanes and beautiful boulevards inside the Garden Ring you will feel real Moscow. It is there, 10 minutes walk from the house, are the most popular streets for eating out — Pokrovka and Myasnitskaya. Outside of the Garden Ring — a quiet and even sleepy area of the Old and New Basmannaya streets. This is a very picturesque place where the atmosphere of the 18th century is preserved — it is not uncommon for wooden mansions (for example, one of the Pushkin's uncle), a lot of gardens and gorgeous churches.

Just around the house (in the proximity of the Krasnye Vorota metro pavilion by Ladovsky) you will find a unique selection of first line avant-garde buildings of end-1920s — early 1930s. Here are such masterpieces as Tsentrosoyuz (by Le Corbusier), People's Commissariat for Agriculture (by Shchusev), People's Commissariat of Railways (by Fomin) and many others.

In the apartment you will find a short guide to the sights of the area.
