The building of the Abrikosov family, constructed in 1905. The architect Shnaubert followed the rules of art nuveau here. And I see the glimpses of Gaudi's art in Barcelona in the details of the building.
The Abrikosov were the founders and developers of confectionery factory which was nationalized in 1918 and named after local communist functionary Babaev. Babaevsky chocolate was one of the best in Moscow. Now all Moscow confectinery factories are unted and have one management.
