The problem of preservation and development of wooden architecture monuments of the early 20th century in suburbs of St. Petersburg is very urgent. The study aims to find out how these villas can be revitalized. For this purpose, we have chosen several model objects, originally designed as suburb villas, redeveloped in soviet time and that are ruining today.
The purpose of the project is to restore and revitalize the still-existing villas, to develop cultural and natural potential of the sites and preserve the cultural heritage, and to be comfortable and attractive places for tourists or other social groups.
