This house was erected in 1899 according to the project of the architect PV Yakovlev in the neoclassical style. Until 1914, it was the profitable home of Olga Mikhailovna Veselovskaya, the wife of a court adviser. In addition, the history of the house is rich in other interesting facts. So it was here that the pre-war childhood of the People’s Artist of the RSFSR Georgy Yumatov passed.

There was no comprehensive reform of the house. Now specialists have repaired the facade, roof, entrances, basement, replaced internal engineering systems.

“It is important to renovate residential buildings comprehensively in order to fully restore the facility. At the same time, we carefully preserve the historical portrait of the houses, reviving their original beauty. During the overhaul of building No. 8, building 1, we paid special attention to the recreation of decorative architectural elements”, says Vladimir Kozhichenkov, Deputy General Director of FKR Moscow. – We create a single project for work, which takes into account all the features of the object. We select the most suitable materials and technologies”.

As the specialist points out, the architecture of the object, made in neoclassical style, is interesting. The façade is divided by horizontal rods, cornices and a frieze. A striking element of the decoration are the decorative porticoes on the 2nd and 3rd floors, as well as the rustication on the first floor. The entrance groups to the entrances are marked with portals with abundant decoration. Neighboring houses are joined from the ends. The facades of the courtyards are made in a laconic style with typical windows. A capping cornice runs along the perimeter of the house.

The conservation work of the historical portrait of the house was carried out with care. First of all, the peeling parts of the plaster layer were beaten off and the ceramic tiles were washed. Then the damaged brick was restored, the cracks were repaired with modern mortars and the plaster layer was repaired. In the second stage, the stucco decoration and architectural elements were ordered, and the passage arch was repaired. In the final stage of the revision, the plaster layer of the walls was renewed and a new coat of paint was applied. After the completion of the main works, the basement of the building, the exterior windows and the slopes of the doors were repaired.

During the repair of the roof of the house, the roof was replaced and the box was repaired. All wooden elements were treated with a fire-retardant composition, which significantly reduces the probability of fire. The temperature and humidity regime was leveled with the help of modern heat-insulating coatings.
