Unusual 14-Storeyed Building in Moscow

Posted on August 16, 2018 by tim

The people of Moscow know this unusual residential building. It’s a few decades old and has fourteen storeys. It has several different nicknames given to it by locals:

The same building from a different angle.  People call it names: “Titanic House”, “Shiphouse”, “House of Nuclear”, “Lying skyscraper”, “Long house” and more. It’s 400m (yards) long, and it occupies half of Bolshaya Tulskaya street, where it is located. It has nine entrances.

Inside, there are long hallways through the building.

It took two decades to finish the building, and it was finished only in the 1990s.

During all of those years, the project was modified numerous times.

Top floors were used for exclusive two-level duplexes which was unusual for Soviet architecture. They planned to build one more “shiphouse” right across the street but later cancelled that idea.

      This ”urban” dormitories are a ubiquitous feature of Russian cities. In 2018 many of them are more vertical.

      To me these slabs of apartment buildings are daunting. Its all very hive-like…a vertical upscale favela. .

        Upscale and favela don’t go together. If you hate Russia so much then get the heck out of there and don’t bother with this site. You remind me of a friend who has been bitching about living Tokyo for the past 13 years. You both need help.

          Its not my fault Russia is what it is….its truly a land of the oxymoron. You obviously have some anger issues. Hopefully someday the scales will fall from your eyes and you will see things clearly.

            …”Upscale favela…”.–LOLZ. Perhaps you don’t know well the scary Merican’t ‘projects’ in the US inner cities. Or any US big city at all.

            …”someday the scales will fall from your eyes and …”.–LOL

    Well, at least it didn’t fall over like they do in China!

      well. at least not like Italian bridge collapse, or—- On 17 July 1981, two suspended walkways through the lobby of the Hyatt Regency in Kansas City, Missouri, collapsed, killing 114 and injuring 200 people at a tea dance.

    The exterior looks pretty good to me. Not very Soviet at all. The inside corridors look daunting, though.

    We have similar two buildings in Split, Croatia builted 1971. People they calls “China Wall”.
