Part of Tatlin Apartments complex is the ATS building of the epoch of constructivism, built in 1927 by the civil engineer V.V. Patek. The four-storey T-shaped building is part of the architectural ensemble of the new multifunctional complex. Tatlin Apartments is one of the few examples of work with heritage of the constructivist style in architecture, and its appearance in Moscow was an important example of how the diligent approach of architects can revive the lost aesthetics of constructivist buildings.
