The three-story mansion in Perovo is part of the so-called “German Town”, designed in the post-war years by Ivan Zholtovsky's workshop. Home to be returned to its original light yellow color and given a major overhaul
May 5, 2022
In the Moscow district of Perovo at 9 Zeleny Prospekt, there is a small yellow three-story house. It is part of the “German Town” – post-war development, which was carried out by the workshop of Ivan Zholtovsky. After the Great Patriotic War, Moscow was actively built up with low-rise Stalinist buildings, and the Perovo district was no exception. In less than 10 years, 60 houses of two or four floors appeared here, in the appearance of which the features of Italian architecture were traced (Zholtovsky was a big fan of Italian architecture and, in particular, Andrea Palladio). And the name of the ensemble – “German Town” – arose because the buildings were built by captured Germans. =”/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/dbc75c37bb377afcb1f1f8a3dacd7ab3.jpg” width=”728″ height=”410″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-64ca9b5a=”1″ alt=”B Perovo will renovate a house designed by Ivan Zholtovsky
To our time, only a few houses of the German Town have survived, some of them are in a deplorable state. One of them is house number 9, built by the Zholtovsky workshop in 1951 according to an individual project. It is notable, first of all, for its multi-storey structure: the height varies from 2 to 3 floors. A crowning cornice is located along the perimeter of the building, the windows are decorated with architraves and window sill cornices, and the double windows are separated by a semicircular pilaster with a capital.
An individual project was developed to restore house No. 9. He is promised to return the famous pale yellow color characteristic of the “German Town”, restore in places of wear and strengthen the stone-brickwork with reinforcement. The overhaul is expected to be completed by August 2022.
