During this period, he made dozens of projects and created his most important architectural achievement Palace Albania (1939). In addition to the Palace Albania, among his most significant buildings, are houses Djordje Zdravkovic in Belgrade. Many of his architectural ideas are not achieved, such as the museum complex on Tasmajdan, Clinic for treatment of tuberculosis and sanatorium at Avala, Exchange Building, District Insurance Office workers in Belgrade. For these projects he won the first prize, but because of lack of money, they are not implemented.
