Palace of the Shirvanshahs

Baku 2014

Client: Icherisheher (Baku Old City)

Palace of Shirvanshahs is a complex of stately buildings on the top of the hill of Baku Old City. Built in the 15th century from shell limestone, the palace required total renovation and conservation five centuries later. We took over the overall organization of this exciting project and carried out the restoration works together with the Austrian studio Erich Pummer on behalf of the Baku Old City Administration.
