Frunze Workers’ Club Change this
Description Change this
The Frunze Workers’ Club is the smallest and simplest of the five clubs Konstantin Melnikov’s designed in Moscow during his “golden period”.
Completed in 1929 on the territory of the Dorogomilov chemical plant, the central rectangular volume of the club, with a roof sloping downward to the rear façade, contains a 300-seat auditorium. The projecting ground floor forms a terrace in front of the foyer, while stairs shafts are concealed behind the stained glass windows of the projecting sides.
