Bottle

On the "New Holland" island opened former prisoners' tower that is popularly called a "Bottle", built in the beginning of the XIX century in a distinctive round shape, reminiscent of a bottle neck. There is an opinion that a popular expression "to climb into a bottle", which means to start a hot argument, appeared in everyday life due to the construction and purpose of this building. According to some information, the three-story ring-shaped structure served as a prototype of English prison in the city of Osborne. In total, the building of the marine prison could accommodate up to 500 criminals on two floors, and the first floor was reserved for household needs. There were storerooms, a bakery and a prisoner's kitchen.

 

In the new history of the island, the development of the Bottle has been the first commercial experience in which each floor of the building was designated for a specific purpose and function. The first floor is for food: cafes, shops, cozy private areas; Second floor - design and fashion, there is also a large bookshop; On the third floor there are yoga rooms, ballet classes, beauty salon and spa; The fourth floor houses the management of New Holland and the archive of the Museum of Modern Art "Garage".
