Julia Tarabarina. The Secret Briton

The house is called Little France. Its composition follows the classical St. Petersburg style, with a palace-like courtyard. The decor is on the brink of Egyptian lotuses, neo-Greek acroteria, and classic 1930s gears; the recessed piers are Gothic, while the silhouette of the central part of the house is British. Its quite interesting to examine all these details, attempting to understand which architectural direction they belong to. At the same time, however, the house fits like a glove in the context of the 20th line of St. Petersburgs Vasilievsky Island; its elongated wings hold up the façade quite well.

Julia Tarabarina. Molding Perspectives

Stepan Liphart introduces schematic Art Deco on the outskirts of Kazan his houses are executed in green color, with a glassy iced finish on the facades. The main merits of the project lie in his meticulous arrangement of viewing angles the architect is striving to create in a challenging environment the embryo of a city not only in terms of pedestrian accessibility but also in a sculptural sense. He works with silhouettes, proposing intriguing triangular terraces. The entire project is structured like a crystal, following two grids, orthogonal and diagonal. In this article, we are examining what worked, and what eventually didnt.

Alyona Kuznetsova. Gold Embroidery

A five-story housing complex designed by Stepan Liphart in Kazan, responds to the stylistically diverse context with its form, both integral and agile, and as for the vicinity of the Ekiyat movie theater, the complex responds to it with a semblance of theater curtain folds, and active plastique of its balconies, that bear some resemblance to theater boxes. Even if excessively pompous a little bit, the complex does look fresh and modern. One will have a hard time finding Art Deco elements in it, even though the spirit of the 1930s, run through the filter of neo-modernism, is still clearly felt, just as a twist of the Occident.

Alyona Kuznetsova. ​Streamline for City Canyons

Stepan Liphart has designed two houses for two small land sites situated in the area surrounding the Varshavsky Railway Station, which is being intensively developed now. The sites are situated close but not next to each other, and they are different, yet similar: the theme is the same but it is interpreted in different ways. In this issue, we are examining and comparing both projects.

Julia Tarabarina. ​Art Deco at the Edge of Space

The competition project by Stepan Liphart a high-end residential complex executed in a reserved classicist style in close proximity to the Kaluga Space Museum responds equally well to the context and to the clients brief. It is moderately respectable, moderately mobile and transparent, and it even digs a little into the ground to comply with strict height restrictions, without losing proportions and scale.
