Residential Building of Š. Zelmanas

Kaunas, Lithuania
1 of 1

This conservative looking building was designed in 1928 by civil engineer Jonas Salenekas. He had a short, but productive career in Lithuanian architecture from the 1920s to the early 1930s and designed a number of public and residential buildings in Kaunas and elsewhere in Lithuania. This building is a typical example of the historicist architecture of Lithuania of the 1920s. The three-story residential building has a symmetrical rectangular plan. Its exterior is decorative. The central part of the building is highlighted by four massive, fluted pilasters, between which there are wide window openings and a small part of the entrance. The side parts of the building have a simpler appearance, divided by smooth wall planes and narrow windows. Three massive balconies with balustrades on the facade give decorativeness and splendor to the building. The upper part is emphasized by a decorative entablature. This is one of the most ornate buildings on V. Putvinskio street.
