After the reconstruction, the building lost the balcony, the console bay window of the main facade received a balcony on brick rectangular pillars. The building is newly rendered and divided into light rust.
On April 30, 1939 the building began to function as the House of Pioneers and Octobrist. The painting of the walls of the rooms and the foyer was made by Palekh artists.
