Description
low-poly model of classical palace in St. Petersburg. There are textures, No plugin used.

The Kikin Hall (?????? ??????) is one of the oldest buildings in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The diminutive residence was commissioned by Alexander Kikin in 1714. The name of the architect is unknown, but similarities to the old Peterhof palace abound, suggesting an attribution to Andreas Schlüter.[1]

The palace was incomplete at the time of Kikin's disgrace and execution in 1718. The building was confiscated by the crown and housed the royal library and the cabinet of curiosities of the Academy of Sciences (later transferred to the Kunstkammer Building).[2] The original two-storey residence was expanded and the third storey was added at some point in the 1720s.[1]

After 1733 the building was occupied by the office of the Horse Guards and their hospital. It was completely remodeled in 1829, and its Baroque decor was removed.[1] The dilapidated building was further damaged by aerial bombs in the 1940s.[3]

It was Irina Benois from the famous Benois family who restored the building to its presumed Petrine Baroque appearance in a campaign lasting from 1952 and 1956. The Kikin Palace currently houses a music school.
