Categories / Architecture/Architectural Monuments/Apartment Buildings

Schreter's Houses (Nos.112 and 114 Moika River Embankment), monuments of architecture; private mansion and apartment building belonging to architect V.A. Schreter and built to his design on neighbouring lots separated from one another by a yard passage. A two-storied mansion with an attic (No.114) was built in 1890-91, in the so-called brick style and is reminiscent of the old Western European buildings (the impression is created by the corner compass window with a turret, fronton spire, high round window, terracotta additions in the walls). On the facade, there is a relief emblem of the Society of Architects. The front entrance with a marble staircase still features the original finishing. On the first floor is a dining room, a study and a drafting room, on the second floor, the living rooms and a large hall, at the attic, children's room. There were household outbuildings in the yard. A five-storey apartment building (No.112) was built in 1897-99 in Art Nouveau style. The facade features light-yellow tiling with brick cornices and corbels. The walls are broken up by paired windows, with triangular corner-windows in between covering two floors. The side facade is decorated by a round turret. Small balconies with grilles are situated on the upper floors, at corners; the attics were designed for artistic studios. The house had all modern conveniences for the period and was inhabited by affluent tenants.
