: Villa of Juozas Tūbelis (now Kaunas art gymnasium), Žaliakalnis district in Kaunas

In his later works architect Feliksas Vizbaras created a modernist villa of quite expressive abstract shapes. Although the building can hardly be compared against prime examples of Western European residential houses of modernist aesthetics, in Lithuanian context, it was one of the most modern objects of its kind built in the temporary capital during the interwar period. Asymmetry, quite free structure, terrace, dark ledges and window edges emphasising its abstract geometry illustrate an easily-recognisable architectural aesthetics of that time. Since 1946 the building became an art school (now Kaunas Art Gymnasium).
