ADDRESS 7, ul. Myaskovskogo (B. Afanasyevsky per.)
CONSTRUCTION 1991 – 1992
One of the first ABD projects implemented in a new manner for the post-Soviet Russia—in cooperation with an American developer, a client and a new Russian bank. A small X1X-th century building (XY111-th century cellars) was adapted for ABC News studio in Moscow. The historic building’s main walls were preserved; the cellar for the filming studio was deepened. A staircase was hidden within a closed space to make a connection with the old building utilizing an element stained glass as the only new architectural element. The staircase lit from above is the only communication structure between four working levels.
