The residential complex known as Gorodok Chekistov (Soviet Security Officers Residential Area) was designed in the beginning of the 1930s by order of the Ural National commissariat for internal affairs administration (NKVD-OGPU) to house employees. Based on the concept of architects Ivan Antonov, Veniamin Sokolov, and Arseny Tumbasov, the residential buildings were combined with cultural and everyday life facilities. The location of these buildings was determined by their functional purpose. Thus, the 11-story U-shape Iset hotel building (dormitory for those lacking family members) – gave a compositional accent to the whole block as well as a club with a general merchandise store and cafeteria faced Lenina Avenue. From the main section of the block, they were split by an expansive courtyard. Located within the internal space of the block are a clinic and a kindergarten with a play area. From the three other sides (KuznechnayaPervomayskaya-Lunacharskogo Streets), the block was constructed with residential buildings; meanwhile, the buildings along Lunacharskogo Street form a memorable saw-shaped composition. The complex is included within the architectural monuments register as an outstanding example of Soviet constructivism.
