HISTORY

  • On the roof there is a solarium, where in the old days was a summer cafe.
  • Sometimes a building called "House of Aladdin". This confusion has arisen due to the proximity of the owner of sounding last name (in the early twentieth century), shops on the ground floor of "Aladin" with the name of fairy-tale hero.

The building is eclectic, made in the classic-modern style. It was built in 1912 by the project of architect Yu.S. Caune. This house was intended for renting apartments.

The ground floor, however, functioned for a long time as a collection of various salons and studios (now there are a restaurant and a bank). The front part of the building is decorated with stucco, on small pedestals on the roof there are 4 female figures in the center, who are guarded by four Atlas. Huge pillars and windows indicate that there are rather high ceilings in the middle of the building, which emphasizes the classical part of the building style. In recent years, the house has been restored, received a colder color scheme, thanks to which the figures have become even better visible to passersby.
