That's the case when design is capital. For 100 years the house of shipowner Shorin has remained the most beautiful against the background of other buildings of Gorokhovets, which cost nothing in spite of their novelty.
Bold colors echo the bold, almost church-like architecture. A unique case of wooden house, and even log (!), in the style of ardeko. Although the style is fully described only by the word "author".
The towers differ in every detail, although the symmetrical facade facing the road is conceived as the main one.
Small herringbone slats are the main design technique of the upper level.
The ends of the logs are closed with elegant overlays with carved patterns.
All the windows are different. It is interesting how the method of maximum diversity works to create a single harmonious image.
It is interesting how the radius logs were made in the round tower.
