Lange street, 5

Gomel, Lange str., 5
Building complex

The complex consists of two buildings combined into a single three-dimensional composition. Individual elements of interior decoration are valuable.

The building at 5 Lange street (Gomel State Medical University) consists of two volumes – the main, rectangular 7-storey building, and a 450-seat meeting room attached from the courtyard facade. The plasticity of the symmetrical main facade is formed by the rhythm of triangular ribs, the framing of rectangular windows. The building is completed with a wide cornice. The facades are decorated with plaster, the walls of the 1st floor and the three-part portal of the entrance group are decorated with red granite. The internal layout is corridor. Marble, felsite, and wood are used in the interior design.

The buildings at 5 and 17 Lange st. were designed as a single complex consisting of the Gomel Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Belarus and the House of Political Enlightenment, united by a three-storey block of the dining room. The building of the Gomel Regional Committee was built in 1981 (architect V.I. Komar, G.K.Tikhov). The functional purpose of the monument was preserved until 1992. Then the Gomel Medical Institute (since 2003 the educational institution «Gomel State Medical University») and the health department of the Gomel Regional Executive Committee began working in the building at  Lange street, 5.
