The Moscow House of Music is located in the Moscow region called "on the Red Hills" and is the undoubted architectural dominant of this area. The House of Music on the Red Hills was built in 2002 and is a 10-minute walk from the Paveletskaya metro station. His ten-story building is built into a complex of office buildings located directly on the east end of Baltschug Island. The building of the House of Music from the outside is rather peculiar in its architecture.
The building dominates the surrounding landscape, all the walls are glass and in all directions offer stunning views of the surrounding cityscapes: the Moscow River, the Novospassky and Big Krasnokholmsky bridges, the Novospassky monastery, the park at the foot of the building, the Swissotel and a kind of modern architectural composition in front of the main entrance to the building of the House of Music, dedicated to music. With the onset of darkness, all these pictures in addition are beautifully highlighted.
The protruding stairs of the building with panoramic glass fences are especially impressive when your look does not interfere with anything, and you get the feeling that there are no fences in front of you, and the stairs soars in the air, and in height this is, for a minute, ten standard floors. Below are some photos taken from these stairs. Very interesting lighting inside the building is obtained closer to sunset, when almost horizontal rays of the setting sun penetrate the building through.
Music, as well as space is incomprehensible, probably, that is why so many motives connected with space are present in the ideas of the House of Music. And the building in the style of high-tech glass and metal and similar to the spacecraft interior and sculptural composition at the entrance, reminiscent of a space satellite.
