The house of a landlord Pashkov in Moscow was built in 1784-1786 under the project by architect V.I. Bazhenov - one of the founders of the Russian classicism. The building was constructed in the type of the palatial country estate with a front court-yard and a magnificent gate. His passion for discrete volumes dedicated the architect to the facade principle. He expanded solemnly along the street on a hill the three-part symmetric composition of the building. The Pashkov’s House is a gem of Moscow architecture of the XVIII century.
