This is the only preserved house of Admiral-Counselor and one of Peter I 's associates - Alexander Kikin (Kikin also had a site in the center of the city, on the site of which the Winter Palace is now located). The house was built in 1714-1720 by an unknown architect (presumably Andreas Schlüter ) not far from the resin yard . In 1718, Kikin was executed for organizing the escape from Russia of Tsarevich Alexei Petrovich , and his house was taken to the treasury.
In 1719-1727, there was a collection of Peter the Great's Kunstkamera and the personal library of Peter I. In the 1720s, the Kikiny Chambers were rebuilt by an unknown architect. Since 1733, the office, hospital, and the church of the Life Guards Equestrian Regiment have been housed here.
In 1829 the building was rebuilt according to the design of the architect Alexander Shaubert , and the baroque decor was destroyed.
During the Leningrad blockade, Kikin’s chambers suffered greatly, but in 1952-1956 they were restored to their intended original form by the architect Irina Benoit . Currently, the building houses a music school.
