A Neverland House.Visiting the Narkomfin Building

Our sightseeing tour will virtually bring you to the late 1920s, when the Narkomfin Building, one of the outstanding masterpieces of the Soviet time avant-garde architecture, was under construction. This was a transition type building that was supposed to teach the Soviet people to live inside the Socialist Utopia. It is formed by accommodation units, i.e. small-sized duplex apartments. Its accessible flat roof hosted a dormitory and the first Soviet "penthouse" that belonged to Nikolay Milyutin, the Commissar of Finance of the RSFSR. Today, the house is being furbished by OOO Liga Prav developer that applies a science-based approach.

The online sightseeing tour is led by Sergey Kuznetsov, a guide and architectural historian.

The Narkomfin Building is one of the most striking examples of residential constructivism architecture. Built in 1928-1930 according to the project of architects Moses Ginzburg, Ignatius Milinis and engineer Sergei Prokhorov for employees of the USSR People's Commissariat of Finance, it is located in Moscow on Novinsky Boulevard at the address: house number 25, building 1. For a long time it was in disrepair. In 2017, restoration works began based on the project of the workshop of Alexei Ginzburg, the grandson of Moses Ginzburg.
