apartment house Yu. B. Baka

There was a time when in Russia the profession of a railway engineer was not only considered prestigious, but also well paid. With their salary, these engineers could afford to build the most luxurious housing, not only for themselves, but also for others. Thus, in St. Petersburg on Kirochnaya Street at the beginning of the twentieth century, an apartment house appeared for the travel engineer Yu. B. Baka. It still remains one of the main architectural attractions of this street, although there are also worthy competitors here.

The house was built by architect B. I. Grishovich in 1905 in the then popular Art Nouveau style, which made it possible to combine elements and details from different eras, including those whose style was difficult to classify. Experts believe that the architecture of the Buck house has many rococo elements, that is, stucco and forged gratings, monograms, curls.

The interior style is supported by wrought-iron railings of marble stairs and stained glass windows in the front door. The basement to the level of the second floor is faced with pink granite. In addition to these beauties, the building attracts curious passers-by and tourists with the construction of its courtyard. The front part and the rear wing of the house are connected by hinged galleries passing in the courtyard at the level of the second and fifth floors. Stained glass windows, luxurious marble staircases, original balconies — all this is constantly supported by local residents, who never tire of raising funds for the restoration of its individual parts. House Yu. B. Baka is listed as a protected architectural monument.
