We wrześniu budynek był jeszcze w rusztowaniach. Zdjęcia poniżej są z grudnia 2012:

Poles seem to love it for some reason since whole neighborhoods are painted this way but what I like here is that they recreated the facade in it's original form.

I think that yellow colour brings certain joy in the public space. I like it.

I think all commieblocks should recieve this treatment. I hate ones that are covered in stained concrete and horribly mismatching window frames.

I absolutly agree with you thatoneguy.
It is perplexing how simple new elements can revalue the appearance.

I like the (fake) wood elements with that metal on the top.

Nice renovation but I like the 1969 look better.
As for the above Moscow photos it seems two medium-sized commies were renovated and long one built behind them but it's a bit too far to judge.
