Per the General Plan of 1935, the embankments of the Moscow River were positioned as the city’s best residential areas.
On one of the embankments, there is a monument of history and culture: the residential building of the Electrode Plant.
House No. 4/22 B – a residential building with a variable number of stories: from eleven to fourteen stories; a sample of the Stalinist Empire style (1954, architect M. I. Sinyavsky). There are 225 apartments in the building.
The building was designed in 1954. Since then, it has been an architectural dominant and defines the appearance of the quarter from the side of the Kosmodamianskaya embankment.
The most prominent feature of the house was the rotunda on its roof. It was made of concrete, which made its reconstruction much more difficult (concrete, as a material, is difficult to process).
The building faces the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Stalin Building across the river.
