FORMER RESIDENTIAL HOUSE OF PRANAS GUDAVIČIUS AND ALEKSANDRA ILJINIENĖ

K. Donelaičio g. 19, Kaunas

Pranas Gudavičius and Aleksandra Iljinienė’ two-storey, three-apartment residential house was one of the prime examples of modernism in interwar Lithuania not only in Kaunas, but all throughout the country as well. The architecture of this house was especially original and suggestive. The apartment was famous for its refined luxury. A peculiar detail of the interior design consisted in the azure Arabian style arches that set off a corner for rest and relaxation. On the roof there was a recreational platform with a small orangery (Winter Garden) which could be seen through the glass ceiling of the hall (has not survived). This was an embodiment of Le Corbusier’s new architectural principals in Lithuanian context. Year: 1933. Style: Modernism. Architect Arnas Funkas.
