Joanna,
Is it the book by Vadim Nesin???  I also have it, a wonderful book.  I just cannot read it, so if you translate, I would love to have a copy in order to understand what is written.

Bob initially had the planned layout of the children's rooms on the website a few years ago, as well as the detailed plan of the kitchen building.

The Alexander Palace / Re:  Alexander Palace Design

I am glad there are other architectually-minded people also wondering what the exact dimensions are.  Years ago I obtained a copy of the original plan from a book and it seems though as if the dimensions on this plan is given in sazhen.  For your info (if you do not already know), 3 arshin= 1 sazhen.  One arshin =  0.71m (2'4"?), thus one sazhen = 2.13m.  
I have had two trips to St Petersburg and Tsarskoye Selo and of course, made a number of visits to the Private Wing of the Alexander Palace that is open to the public.  I think the dimensions of the rooms in the private wing is 9 arshin x 14 arshin.  The width of the corridor I think is 4 arshin.  The two doors opposite one another in the corridor giving access to Alexandra's dressingroom/bathroom and on the opposite side of the corridor to the formal reception room of Nicholas I guess are 2 arshin wide each.  What about the height of the ceilings?
Maybe Bob Atchison has an exact blue print of the floors.  He is the expert.  I read in Edvard Radzinsky's book "The Last Tsar" that he makes reference to the blue prints.  Of course someone has a copy somewhere...  
What about putting on the website the layout of the basement as well as the second floor?
