The Melnikov House by architect Konstantin Melnikov is a classic residence that represents the forefront of the 1920’s Russian avant-garde. Located on Krivoarbatsky Lane in the then trendy district of Arbat, on an open lot, its aesthetics differ dramatically from traditional Soviet residential architecture. More details after the break.
