This is one of the many small, one-story houses built in Kaunas in the 1930s. This house, designed by civil engineer Kazimieras Sienkevicius in 1938, was built by officer Jokubas Dagys. The plan of the building is rectangular, with a part of the volume protruding forward. The light-colored exterior of the building is modern and modest. The facades have rectangular windows of different sizes, which are accentuated by horizontal lines at the bottom. The asymmetric composition is highlighted by a protruding volume on the main facade, at the corner of which is the main entrance with a small canopy over the door. The upper part is completed by a straight cornice line and a high-pitched tiled roof. It is interesting that next to this one stands a very similar looking house built around the same time also according to the design of Kazimieras Sienkevicius.
