The house, which belonged to Elijas Šneideris, was built in just half a year. Each floor had two apartments: one three-room, one four-room. As was customary, the best rooms were joined by sliding half-doors; on the courtyard side near the kitchens there were two small rooms for the maids; but there was no second, household staircase, probably for space-saving reasons; there was, however, an elevator. In order visually to decrease the apparent height of the house, the fourth storey was made narrower than the lower three. The building stands out for its elegance, its lovely shapes and proportions no less than its well-chosen details of which Kudokas was a real master. And the flowing balconies with their rounded-out ends endow the building with extraordinary gracefulness. Year: 1938. Style: Modernism. Architect Stasys Kudokas.
