Visitors have described the interior as ‘grotesque’ but it appears to be intentional. The house was created by artist Nikolay Synkov and was the headquarters of the Fermata Arts Foundation.The artist created the house's unusual textures with burlap, copper, paints and adhesives.

In a document by the studio, it says the creation is based on the ideas of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, and "reflects that peace is more honourable than the tragedy of war.”
