Joano Jofeto namas_Žemaičių g 36 ikonele

House of doctor Joanas Jofetas

The end of P. Višinskis Street, which directs us to the door of the Church of the Resurrection, is framed by two private residential houses. As seen from the side of the church, these two modernists form a real modernist gate to the no less modernist quarters of Žaliakalnis, characterized by a wide variety of wooden and masonry architecture.

House of Legeckai family

Although this house could easily be attributed to the authorship of architect B. Elsbergas (at least some houses of a similar type and architecture can be seen right here in V. Putvinskio Street), it is a project of engineer G. Gumeniukas.

Villa of Valčiai family

Two adjacent summer houses in Kačerginė belonged to sisters Pranciška Ona Skomskienė and Zofija Valtienė. Both of them were designed and built by their brother Juozas Paulauskas. The summer houses designed by the same person also had individual features. The villa of Zofia and her husband Jonas, a lawyer, had a wooden tower typical of the resort architecture, which stands out and protrudes in the crowns of trees to this day.

lietukio ikonele 3

Former office building of the “Lietūkis” company

Apparently, the office of one of the largest cooperatives in Lithuania, which had a very significant impact on the economy of independent Lithuania, seems a bit modest. Especially when comparing it with the offices of "Pažanga" or "Pienocentras" companies in Laisvės Avenue. However, the "palace" of the company was considered to be a real decoration of Vytautas Avenue.
