The monumental building of the Orderly Stables (8 Sadovaya Street) was built in 1822-1824 by the architect S.L. Shustov according to the design of V.P. Stasov for placing the own imperial stables of Alexander I. On Stasov’s conception the semicircular form building was located in the heart of the residential area between Cavaliers’ houses. It compositionally combined them into the completed architectural ensemble. Realizing the project S.L. Shustov increased the size of the building in length and hight, he built the mezzanine floors for placing employees’ apartments over the end parts of the building. The building purpose is peculiarly reflected in the sculpture decoration, frieze metopes were decorated with moulding horse heads in laurel wreathes, as well as in features of the compositional architectural solution. Inside there were horseboxes for horses and two carriage sheds that were lighted through semicircular windows in the top parts of walls.
