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.
