    Abstract. Currently, one of the important directions of solving the housing problem in Russia is the reconstruction of residential buildings. Modernization of old housing makes it possible not only to prolong the life of a residential building, but also to improve its performance: to increase the level of comfort of apartments, to equip the building with modern engineering equipment, to ensure its energy efficiency and architectural expressiveness. The reconstruction of the morally and physically obsolete housing stock of the city should be carried out in a comprehensive solution of social, economic, urban planning, architectural and structural, organizational and technological problems. When reconstructing residential buildings of the historical development, which are often architectural monuments, an important urban planning task is to preserve their original appearance. The analysis of structural solutions of historical buildings of St. Petersburg and the possibility of applying various structural and technological schemes of reconstruction to them, on the basis of which it was concluded about the effectiveness of modernization of buildings using the method of built-in frame made of monolithic reinforced concrete, is presented. The use of this method makes it possible to completely change the planning structure of the building, qualitatively improving the layout of apartments, without strengthening the design of the outer walls, thereby ensuring the immutability of the historical appearance of the building, as well as to build-in elevator shafts and increase the volume of the building due to its superstructure.
    Key words: housing stock, reconstruction, method of built-in frame, structural and technological scheme, bearing structures.
