The building served as a dwelling for Soviet elite. It had comfortable apartments of "improved" type, from three to six rooms, some at two levels. This building is one of Eugeny Levinson's and Igor Fomin's best projects, a brilliant example of late Constructivism has pronounced dynamic expressiveness and refined forms. It's a great example of late stage of the style, filled with the spirit of Expressionism and a hint of Art Deco. A powerful turn of the central part of the building was constrained by static lateral wings with horizontal loggias at end faces. All the facades were covered with cement plaster with marble crumbs, and decorated to look like stone blocks. This decorative approach demonstrated that late Constructivism was ready to use Classicism elements. It was a symptom of a return to development of the Classicism language.
