In Kiev he also designed the Pokrovskaia (1766) and Nikolai Naberezhnyi (1772–85) churches, an arcade of shops (1778), and the belfry over the gates of the Kirillovskii Monastery, which has not been preserved (1748–60). In addition. Grigorovich-Barskii built the town hall in Kozelets (c. 1756). During the last period of his creative work, traditional Ukrainian baroque style was complemented by elements of early Russian classicism.
