Address: 54 Suvorov Ave.
Date of construction: first half of the 50-s of the 20th century
The multi-storey building near the hotel “Izmail” was built in the architectural style of the Stalinist Empire, as well as its “neighbor” on 56 Suvorova Ave.
This style reigned in the Soviet era from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s and was distinguished by elements of decoration of the exterior of house-building with various grandiose decorations. Some of them kept the signs of Soviet state symbolism and was saturated with ideological cliches.
But this building does not bear the ideological ideology of architecture, possibly because it was originally built specifically for the housing stock of the city, and not as a public building.
Pompously decorated pediments with the likeness of obelisks looking upwards stand out in the facade decor. There are a lot of other decorative details on buildings – a riot of friezes with floral ornaments, the dominant motifs of which are a vine with bunches of berries, half-columns, in the upper part of which are details that make you remember their Corinthian counterparts.
A sign is placed on the building telling us that the head of the Soviet Danube Shipping Company Viktor Pilipenko lived here from 1977 to 1986.
