Bakuninskaya 5

The building of the hotel complex consists of two volumes. One of them being the reconstructed Telecom building and a new superstructure. The Telecom building was built in 1927-1928 by the civil engineer V. Patek's project and is an example of industrial constructivism.

The four-story building is shaped in form of the letter "T" in plan view. Staggering monumental facade with large smooth planes, on which the large inscriptions of "mail", "telephone", "telegraph" were located. It has been divided into vertical and horizontal bars, red and gray stripes emphasizing the lines of windows and frames. The main facade of the Telecom structure is facing Bakuninskaya Street, which is preserved and is recreated according to the original design. The building is being rebuilt according to the new functional purposes, including an increase in the building plot. The new independent volume is lifted above the existing building. The reconstructed building and overhanging new superstructure become visually divided by a large horizontal gap, thus creating an open sculpture park. A contrast is emphasized by a cantilevering part of the superstructure.
 

The facades of the new superstructure volume part are solved in the form of a large grid of modular planes with composite panels and stained glass. It also involves pronounced balconies and pylons. The facades of the reconstructed Telecom building are plastered. Entrance groups are finished with natural stone and the maximum height of the parapet is 45 m.
