Vrubelya, 4, a uniquely designed premium-class housing estate in the Sokol District, is a unique project that shares the traditions of Moscow art nouveau. The visual solutions are inspired by works of Mikhail Vrubel. An agreement has been made with the State Tretyakov Gallery to use images of the artist’s paintings to promote the project.

The estate sits in a location well known for its traditions, opposite the artist village. The heritage of Moscow art nouveau in its design is represented by the curved contours of the building and decorative elements, carved rusticwork, awe-inspiring terraces, and typical colour schemes. The most recognisable element is the iris flowers that gave the building its unofficial name — the Iris House.
