Late 19th century stone house, considerably redesigned in 1900 (presumably by architect Y.O. Dutel).
The late 19th century stone house with attic on Sobornaya (currently Pushkina) Street belonged to Ekaterinburg officiary G. V. Uvarov, who rented the premises out to various establishments. The building was occupied by M. I. Korotkova’s hosiery shop, fashion shop, and F. T. Timofeev’s artificial mineral water shop.
In 1900 the house was considerably redesigned (presumably by architect Y.O. Dutel) and obtained its modern current appearance combining classicist and eclectic elements, with the main entrance and adjoining wide passage to the court yard shifted from the central axis to the right, creating an asymmetric composition of the main western façade.
Architect Yuliy Dutel (1824−1908) was born into a German merchant family in St. Petersburg. Since 1840 he attended Emperor’s Academy of Arts as extern, and in 1850 was granted the title of artist. For his project of a cemetery for warriors fallen at Sevastopol Dutel received the title of architecture academic in 1857.
Dutel worked in the Urals in 1881−1905, first in Irbit, and since 1889 – in Ekaterinburg. In 1890 he was appointed the city architect of Ekaterinburg, becoming the only one in pre-revolutionary history of the city architecture academic to hold this office.
