P. Višinskio G. 13

Kaunas, Lithuania
1 of 3
Evaldas Vilkončius, 2023

This small two-story residential building was designed and built in the early 1930s. The building stands at the intersection of P. Visinskio and Zemaites streets, where quite a few expressive residential houses were built between the wars. The architecture of this building is rational, characteristic of that era. The exterior is divided by narrow vertical windows. This simple composition is complemented by the horizontal lines on the first floor, which encircle the entire volume of the building. The laconic-looking main facade, located on P. Visinskio street is complemented by the slightly curved Avant-corps, which is divided by vertical windows and smooth wall planes between them. As usual for buildings of that era, the upper part is emphasized by a profiled cornice, visually masking the pitched roof. The side facade, located on Zemaites Street is much simpler and has a symmetrical composition. It is highlighted by one of the entrances, a small canopy and a vertical window above it. All of these features create a modern aesthetic of the exterior of this small building.
