Historical background

34, Suvorovsky Prospekt
Architect A.V. Kashchenko’s own rented apartment house.
Architect:  A.V. Kashchenko
Date of construction: 1901.
Style: Moderne.

In 1900 A.V. Kashchenko acquired a plot of 34/1 house from its former owner Vasili Ivanovich Ivankov. Alexander Vassilyevich made a design of his new house reconstruction by himself and sent it to the municipal council, where it was approved.
A.V. Kashchenko’s project:

  1. The height of the buildings projected must conform to article 358, vol.XII of the Constructional Statute;
  2. Mansard-like attic will not contain dwelling space.
The new 6-storeyed house occupied the whole plot and reached the height permitted by the Construction statute of the capital.
In 2001 the house was included by Saint Petersburg Committee on state supervision, exploitation and preservation of historical and cultural monuments in the “List of newly revealed objects of historical, artistic or other cultural value”
