Bolshaya Morskaya street, 30
The office building on Bolshaya Morskaya Street, 30, also known as the House of Vrevskikh, is a mansion with a rich history. The project of the first house on this site of one of the most picturesque streets of St. Petersburg appeared in 1737. In those days, the site was a cross-cutting one, so its owner had the task to build two buildings at once - one on Bolshaya Morskaya, the other on the site of Moyka River. The merchant Ivan Gross was the first of the owners who coped with this task. In the 40s of the XVIII century one-story mansion with high base standing on seven massive shafts was built for him on the side of Bolshaya Morskaya.
So the house remained until the middle of the XIX century. During this time, he changed a number of owners, performed the functions of various institutions. The building housed shops and workshops, a furniture factory. In the 1830s a fashion store of Madame Sichler worked here, where Natalya Pushkina, the wife of the great Russian poet, was a regular visitor. By the way, the Pushkins' family lived next door at that time in the “House of the merchant Zhadimirovsky” on Bolshaya Morskaya, 26.
House №30 was first reconstructed in 1854-1857 by order of its owner, Baroness Vrevskaya. The author of the new project of the building, executed in the style of retrospectiveness, was the famous architect Peter Ivanovich Tamansky. After reconstruction, the mansion became a three-story.
Another small reconstruction, which marked the decoration of the facade of the building, took place in the 1890s by the project of the architect Balinsky, known as the author of the first metro construction projects in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
At the beginning of the XX century, the mansion was bought by Russian Bank for foreign trade. The bank occupied three houses at once - 30, 32 and 34 - before the 1917 revolution. The City Arbitration Court was located in the building from the beginning of the Soviet era until the end of the 1990s.
The mansion got its modern look after a major renovation, carried out from 2002 to 2005. The house was actually rebuilt from scratch with a detailed reconstruction of the historical facade. At the same time, the building was acquired by VTB Bank, whose office was located here until 2019.
Today, house number 30 on Bolshaya Morskaya Street is a modern multifunctional office building located in the heart of the business and cultural life of St. Petersburg. Its main advantage is the location, which favorably has good transport accessibility and the neighbourship of the most famous and demanded sights of the Northern capital.
