    In detail

    The building of Savvinskoe Poddvorye (Savvinskoe Metochion) in magical Russian style, an architectural monument of federal significance, was built in 1907 by architect I.S. Kuznetsov (1867 – 1942).

    The Metochion was built in the ownership of Savvo-Storozhevsky Monastery in a pseudo-Russian style, partly imitating Russian architecture of the 17th century. The building was built as a Moscow apartment building of Zvenigorodsky Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery on the location of the mediaeval Voskresny High Monastery. Various offices, a hotel, and the Savvinskoe episcopal representation (Metochion) were located in it.

    The Savvinskoe Poddvorye also entered into the history of Moscow’s and Russia’s cinematography, as it was exactly here in 1908 that the famous Aleksandr Khanzhonkov and his “A. Khanzhonkov and Co Trade House” operated. Initially, he was only engaged in trade and film rental.

    During reconstruction in 1938-1940 in a project by A.G. Mordvinov, it was decided to move Savvinskoe Poddvorye to new foundations deep in the quarter. With a mass of 23,000 tonnes, the building was moved on the night of 4 November 1939, without relocation of the tenants. The building, with windows looking out onto Tverskaya and numbered № 26, found itself in the courtyard and became house № 6/6.

    Savvinskoe Poddvorye is currently hidden behind the houses of 6 Tverskaya and the new building of the Moscow Artistic Academic Theatre on Kamergersky Lane, but can be seen by walking through the arch on 6 Tverskaya and the internal courtyards of the Metochion.

    Savvinskoe Poddvorye is included in the list of the brightest examples of adopting methods of the national romantic current in the modern, combining contemporary materials and constructions with motifs of ancient Russian decorative traditions. The architectural peculiarities of the four-storey building are a large central arch alcove, elegant windows, ceramic façade design, and tent towers with spires. The building’s internal courtyard consists of a well-court closed on four sides.
