Owned by Kazimieras Škėma, a famous lawyer, this house had five floors, which in the interwar years was a rarity. During its construction the owner had to negotiate hard in order to get its height approved by the municipality’s building commission, since it diverged noticeably from the general height level of the structures on V. Putvinskis Street. Each floor contained a five-room apartment. Apartments in this house were rented by the Swedish and Czechoslovak legations. The prevailing modernist tendencies in Lithuania of the thirties are highlighted in the building .The Škėma house is one of several interwar buildings from V. Putviskio St. 52 to 72 that now form an architectural complex enjoying the status of cultural heritage monuments. Year: 1932–1933. Style: Modernism. Architects Bronius Elsbergas, Klaudijus Duš-Dušauskas.
