The famous Lubyanka Square in Russia is getting a new facelift this year as the original Central Children’s Store will opened its newly renovated doors to eager young children and parents alike. The building was originally constructed in 1957 by famous architect, A. Dushkin. The major restoration of the store’s infrastructure was completed in December 2014, and the last few months have been used for designers to create a modern look of the individual stores found inside Children’s Store. 

ENGEOCOM has been working on reconstructing and adapting the current structure of the building to a more modern infrastructure that could house multiple stores and become a staple in Lubyanka Square. Before starting to work on this project, Mosgosstroynadzor submitted the necessary documents of compliance in order to align contraction goals with local guidelines and regulations. 

The restoration of the building had to be completed in extremely small areas, as the surrounding vicinity of Central Children’s Store lies among the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation and the hotel “Savoy.” The delivery and assembly of materials was made extremely difficult due the positioning of the work site. However, the project was completed successfully by employing safe practices and long term goal setting. 

The monumental properties of Central Children’s, and the historic attachments most locals have to this building were taken into consideration when designers created the renovation plans. The new changes are meant to preserve the original outline of its silhouette, space structure and other design elements. More than 50,000 visitors will be expected to enjoy the newly modernized store in April of 2015.
