Some history of the object:
The factory of wooden house construction “DSK-500” was founded in 1987. The appearance of the factory was related to the programme of oil and gas development. German company «STREIF» and finland company «RAUTE» were the base of factory DSK-500. All manufacturers are located on 56 hectare with a unified engineering infrastructure system. Building’s square is 23 hectare.
The design capacity of the enterprise was calculated for the production of 500 thousand square meters per year. The base products are fully equipped housing, including delivery, individual furniture and other interior items. 
In the 1990s, the enterprise stopped functioning. And it still doesn't work. The life of the plant stopped, but the buildings remained, colossal not only in themselves, but also in the occupied territory.
