The front line housing unit (Lot #1) was made long but narrow, stretching from east to west with vividly rounded abutting western end (riverside). Both buildings are very different in appearance but the main idea of Skuratov`s rounded facade was to appeal to aerodynamical designs of the avant-garde era. His building resembles a comet: the abutting end is 100% faced with glass as if all imposts were blown away to the side walls.Shade and colour of lateral facades darkens in steady gradient “from comet`s head to its tail”: tail gets charred.
