Mindovsky’s mansion

Best Implemented Restoration / Reconstruction Project

About the project
This mansion was built by L. Kekushev in 1903 and is believed to be one of the best samples of Moscow Modern. Called after its first owner, the house once was a residence of the ambassador of Sweden, and since 1972 it became the New Zealand Embassy. After some historical and cultural research, the authors recovered the initial layout and the lost interior pieces, renovated the facades, the forged fence and the complex roofing.
One of the project highlights are the sun catching windows that have been restored along with the sculptural group at the southern façade.
