Khrenov's house

The building was erected in 1909 by architect Alexander Khrenov. In 2003, Eldar Ryazanov chose the legendary building for the filming of his comedy “The Bedroom Key”. The film tried to reproduce everyday life in the age of industrialization, using an elevator, which, however, for some reason opens the doors on its own in one of the episodes. Although engineer Hougton managed to automate the elevator doors only in 1926, much later than the actions in the tape. Many famous architects lived in this house, including Vladimir Upatchev, the author of building No. 13 on the 12th line of V.O.

A little further from house No. 5 along Tavricheskaya Street, there are other buildings, authored by the same Alexander Khrenov. In total, he built more than 30 houses in St. Petersburg, he could have built more, but in the 1920s he left troubled Russia and moved to China. By the way, it was he who designed Muyaki's apartment building, inside which is the most beautiful elevator in St. Petersburg.

In the 2000s, the elevator car of Khrenov's house was replaced with a new one, but it was decided to keep the shaft as part of the interior. A watchman is on duty at the entrance. As many regulars of this front door note, it is quite friendly. However, the security guard allows only to enter the first floor, but that's enough.
