This is a Gothic "bestiary" in the center of Moscow

Architect Peter Pavlovich Shchekotov built the beautiful apartment house in the Gothic style at the request of Konstantin Lazarev, the honorary citizen of Moscow in 1897. The building is richly decorated with porticoes, carved decoration, curly inserts, mosaics, other complex architectural elements and stylistically stands out among its neighbors.

In 2005, the building was reconstructed. Particular interest during this restoration work deserves specialists from the Center for Historical and urban research: they departed from the original form of the building, but were able to recreate the spirit of Gothic, placed on the facade images of fantastic creatures, which were absent in the author's project. So, on the serving bay window the chimera's head appeared, and above the arch of the former passage yard there was a unicorn. Graceful, even miniature jewelry does not correspond very much to the author's style of Peter Shchekotov (he preferred large items of decor), but this building "fell into place". Also during the last reconstruction the attic floor was built up.

Today Naschokinsky, 8 is an office and residential complex.

Oddly enough, we know for sure that "night quiet, clear; new moon could be seen in front of the red roof of a large white house; there is little snow" on March 25, 1851 in Sivtsev Vrazhek. All this thanks to the inhabitants of the house number 34.
