The Stanislavsky Factory business centre uses the modernized buildings of a former gold-thread manufacture, built at the start of the 20th century.
The manufacture was owned by the family of outstanding theatre director, Konstantin Stanislavsky, friend and collaborator of Anton Chekov, who built a workers' theatre at the site. The theatre still stands.
Stanislavsky Factory in its present form is the result of refurbishment in 2005 to a design by the award-winning British architectural firm, John McAslan + Partners. The work created a unique architectural ensemble: pre-1917 buildings have been completely restored, and Soviet-era buildings have been organically integrated into the overall concept. A quiet courtyard and blossoming cherry orchard (a reverence to the Stanislavsky-Chekhov connection) lends a unique flavour to the whole.
