Now, here's the more obscure stuff, stuff from that seventies russian book from ukraine.
weird interior of one of the earlier winter palace versions
I think this is an elevation of the throne room of the Apraksin palace
I think the upper image is another elevation of the Apraksin palace throne room, the lower one i dont really know, youll have to translate the caption yourself
This is ceiling plan of something, probably the throne room of apraksin palace but again I dont really know
these all appear to be scrapped sketches for the extension of Apraksin palace. These extension plans were scrapped, I think, when it was decided to just tear down the whole thing and rebuild it into the Winter Palace we have today.
These next two pictures are from one of the scrapped designs for the winter palace.
This is the super rare EAST elevation, from before the addition of St Georges hall mangled the whole thing, and it was covered up by the hermitage extensions.
Here's a window plan
Next, three sections of the Jordan staircase!
Here, an elevation of the winter palace throne room, before it was divided up into the royal apartments!
Im guessing this is the ceiling to the winter palace throne room, but again, dont really know
some window elevations
Im assuming this is the pulpit in the chapel
some sort of mezzanine library maybe? again, you have to translate the caption yourself
Now, something Im really proud to be able to post, the plans to the short-lived opera house in the southwest corner!
now I know its not a blueprint, but heres a depiction of what i think is the old winter palace throne room
honestly no idea on this one
Here's a plan of the throne room, with some wierd oval configuration in it? caption holds the answers to what that is i think
no idea on this one either
I think this is a side elevation of st georges hall
No idea youd have to translate the caption. actually ill just say TTC when you need to do that from now on
I think this is one of the three big neva staterooms
I think this is also one of the neva staterooms
Here's I think a cutaway of nicholas hall
A floor plan of the southwest corner of the main floor in 1818
the royal apartments floor plan in the northwest corner
the main floor, the rooms right behind the south facade on that square with the column, back in 1827
another plan of the royal apartments in the northwest corner
I think this is a plan of the october staircase where it starts on the first floor
Top, TTC. Bottom, floor plan from 1830.
