Today, the conservation of natural resources is an integral part of a developed society, it allows you to save time, money and resources, as well as preserve the history of cities. Therefore, it would be quite wasteful to destroy those large industrial areas with their ready infrastructure, buildings and advantageous locations. At the end of the 19th - beginning of the 20th century, the industrial revolution began on the territory of Russia. At that time, a large number of large industrial complexes were built and now a lot of them are abandoned. In this research I consider the research papers and successful experience of other countries and identify the basic principles that make revitalization successful by analyzing successful projects, articles and other scientific research. Based on the analyses of the research papers and existing projects I made a design proposal of an existing former factory located in Moscow.
