The residential house designed for the employees of the Bank of Lithuania was one of the largest and the most luxurious houses rented during the early interwar years. Besides apartments, it also had a hall and separate guest rooms. The building following the eclectic style of historicism was one of the first buildings to lay the foundation for the prestigious street of the interwar capital. The building erected in the not-so-populated area of the New Town had monumental architecture which resembled that seen in large cities. Luxury and disregard for the size surrounding structures can be evidenced not only by the representative facade facing V. Putvinskis Street, but also by the inner courtyard of the building. Very fancy facades are enhanced by a two-story high arched hallway which, unfortunately, leads straight to the slope.
